Database first, ignore table

Post by stevepietrykoski » Sat 24 Mar 2018 02:38

There are several tables in my database which I do not wish to model because they are not compatible with entity framework's primary key requirements. Is there any way to ignore these tables so that they do not keep coming up when I update the model from the database? Thanks!

Once you clear selection of these tables in the Update From Database wizard, Entity Developer will remember your choice, and these particular tables will be unselected in the next runs of the wizard.

Thanks, I am aware of this behavior. The problem is when I have new tables I do want, everything is unchecked and I have to look through the list and remember which ones I don't want. There are a couple dozen tables I never want, and mixed in are the two or three that got added.

We recommend you to move unwanted tables to a separate schema.

I have to say this is a pointless answer. It would be much better to consider how to solve the actual problem, even if it is something you cannot commit to now.
