You are using Database First approach with Devart Entity Model (*.edml), aren't you?

When adding a table to the model, Default Value of StorageColumn in SSDL and Default Value of EntityProperty in CSDL are initialized with the default value of the column in database.

Hi,
yes.. I am using database first aproach with entity framework;
However when adding tables fro sql where some collumns have default values applied... it is not replicated on model side.

Please specify:
1) the name and version of your target database server
2) the DDL script of a sample table for reproducing the issue
