Entity Framework 6 and a database-first strategy are both used in my ASP.NET MVC 4 application. The current goal is to introduce a new column to the production environment.
column is not empty in the table. Numerous data points are included in the production table.
Can somebody advise me on how to handle these modifications using a code-first approach? What should I do? Entity Framework is new to me.
If you decide to go with the database-first strategy, you may carry out the following:
execute a script to migrate the database:
ALTER TABLE Deposit ADD <column_name> INT NULL GO UPDATE Deposit SET <a valid not null values for your column> GO ALTER TABLE Deposit ALTER COLUMN <column_name> INT NOT NULL GO
2) You must update as you are employing the db-first strategy.
) that is already tied to the database. If my memory serves me properly, Solution Explorer's context menu offers this option.
