Is it possible to turn off Entity Framework using the
web.config? In the application I'm developing we have the following environments
The Integration Testing and Production databases are managed by a database administrator, so we have to send them a script to make changes to the database.
I've spent hours Googling and looking through old projects, and I can't find how to do this or remember if we ever turned off migrations on the old projects in the first place.
From the lack of information I'm doubting if what I'm asking is needed or possible, but there is something in the back of my head that's annoying me about this so I thought I'd ask the experts.
The easiest method is to simply delete the
dbo._MigrationHistory table from these environments. If that table doesn't exist, then only an "initial" migration can ever be generated against that database, which will fail if someone tries to actually apply it to a database with existing tables.
