I am currently developing a .NET Core 3.1 Web API which should communicate with a Firebird database (storing/retrieving data). I would like to handle that communication using
Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore 3.1.2. Entity Framework is completely new for me so excuse me if this question is too simple. But I couldn't find the answer online.
Because the database is really big I want to automatically generate all my needed models using EF Core.
I tried using the
Scaffold-DbContext command in the packet manager console:
Scaffold-DbContext "user id=USER;password=PASSWORD;database=DATABASE;data source=SOURCE;port number=PORT;character set=UNICODE_FSS;pooling=False;server type=Default" FirebirdSql.EntityFrameworkCore.Firebird -OutputDir Models
Entity Framework Core is generating the
Context.cs but not any models.
Do I have to specify the models I want to import? How do I do that?
To summarize the response to the question you posted on the firebird-net-provider group, support for scaffolding the model in EntityFrameworkCore is currently not available for Firebird. The improvement ticket for this is DNET-798.
