How to manually (via code) apply DbMigration which was manually crafted?

c# dbmigrate entity-framework-6

Popular Answer

Because the migrations are cumulative and must be executed in order, it makes no sense to cherry-pick one to run alone. Thus, it would be wiser for you to do the equivalent ofupdate-database launch-time powershell command for applications.

To achieve it, we use the following code:

In theConfiguration.cs class function Object() { [native code] } (made when you created this fileenable-migrations )

AutomaticMigrationsEnabled = false;
AutomaticMigrationDataLossAllowed = false;

then use the next technique when the app launches:

public static void ApplyDatabaseMigrations()
    //Configuration is the class created by Enable-Migrations
    DbMigrationsConfiguration dbMgConfig = new Configuration()
        ContextType = typeof(MyDbContext) //+++++CHANGE ME+++++
    using (var databaseContext = new MyDbContext()) //+++++CHANGE ME+++++
            var database = databaseContext.Database;
            var migrationConfiguration = dbMgConfig;
            migrationConfiguration.TargetDatabase =
                new DbConnectionInfo(database.Connection.ConnectionString,
            var migrator = new DbMigrator(migrationConfiguration);
        catch (AutomaticDataLossException adle)
            dbMgConfig.AutomaticMigrationDataLossAllowed = true;
            var mg = new DbMigrator(dbMgConfig);
            var scriptor = new MigratorScriptingDecorator(mg);
            string script = scriptor.ScriptUpdate(null, null);
            throw new Exception(adle.Message + " : " + script);
