ASP.NET (C#) Question

Add column to aspnetusers with database first

I have found many tutorials for adding columns to the Identity tables (which I have successfully moved to the application database) with database migrations however my understanding is this is not applicable in database fist projects. So...how do I add columns to the aspnetusers table in a database first project?

I would like to ad a bit type column called Is RegComplete which is initially set to 0 then at some point when the user has completed some more tasks then set to 1.

Answer

OK, I've cracked it! Firstly I didn't realise that although I have moved the Identity tables to the Application database there is still two Database Contexts, one for the application tables which are DB First, and the other for the Identities tables.

I was able to enable migrations and add the column using code first and migrate then update the database. The new column is now available in the controller.

I found this tutorial which helped me: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/webdev/archive/2013/10/16/customizing-profile-information-in-asp-net-identity-in-vs-2013-templates.aspx
