Is controller scaffolding missing in MVC 6?

When creating controller in MVC 6 I don't see the scaffolding for creating controller methods? Will they be missing or in the production release?

If you are referring to CRUD scaffolding for controllers and views with ASP.NET 5 and MVC 6, it has been split off from the Visual Studio GUI and moved to command line.

You'll need a package called CodeGenerators, add it to your project.json configuration file as:

"dependencies": {
    "Microsoft.Framework.CodeGenerators.Mvc": "1.0.0-beta4",

At the moment VS does not offer GUI command to perform scaffolding but you can give a look to this link :
