EF Migrations: Rollback last applied migration?Ask Questions

 Posted on 09/28/2019

This looks like a really common task, but I can't find an easy way to do it.

I want to undo the last applied migration. I would have expected a simple command, like

PM> Update-Database -TargetMigration:"-1"

Instead, all I can come up with is:

PM> Get-Migrations

Retrieving migrations that have been applied to the target database.







PM> Update-Database -TargetMigration:"CategoryIdIsLong"

(At least I can use just the name, skipping the timestamp...)

Is there an easier way?

As of EF 5.0, the approach you describe is the preferred way. One solution would be to create a wrapper PS script that automates the steps above. Additionally, feel free to create a feature request for this, or better yet, take a shot at implementing it! http://entityframework.codeplex.com/

In EntityFrameworkCore:

Update-Database 20161012160749_AddedOrderToCourse

where 20161012160749_AddedOrderToCourse is a name of migration you want to rollback to.
