Where does Entity Framework 6 wizard cache connection strings? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to reset or delete all of the cached connection strings that show up in the Entity Framework "Update Wizard".  I do not store the connection strings in the app.config.  The connection strings appear to not be stored in the solution because other workstations do not show them as the solution is source controlled.

    Please let me know where Entity Framework 6 caches these connection strings. I would like to clear out old and unused connection strings.

  • They are stored in Server Explorer, from where you can also remove them

  • Hi .MARK,

    This forum is discuss Visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor.

    Since your problem is related to Entity Framework, I will help you move this thread to ADO.NET Entity Framework forum for a better help.

    Best Regards,

    The connectionstring is not cached anywhere that I know about, which is going to be sitting in the app.config of the project that has EF implemented in it.

    You should post to the EF forum.
