There is no way to set comments in fluent mapping to migrate them to database in runtime.

Thanks for responding,

I maked a post in the user-voice (https://devart.uservoice.com/forums/105 ... code-to-db). I think its not a problem to parse the xml and to insert these
values with sql. A pity thats not out of the box possbible.

Thank you for your vote.

JIC: this is a complicated task, because the XML documentation comments are not metadata; they are not included in the compiled assembly and therefore they are not accessible through reflection.
