When using EF (code first) I mapped a table(test) to a schema called core.

modelBuilder.Entity<Test>().Map(x => x.ToTable("test", "core"));

When I run update-database it creates a table called core.test as expected. 

However when I try and access context.Tests it still seems to be mapped to 'test1.test'. So it seems to be ignoring the schema.

I have tested this with Mssql and it works as expected there.      

How to repeat:
public class Test
        public int Id { get; set; }
        public string Description { get; set; }

    public class MySqlDbContext : DbContext
        public DbSet<Test> Tests { get; set; }

        protected override void OnModelCreating(DbModelBuilder modelBuilder)
            //Todo: Add index information, more relationships, etc
            modelBuilder.Entity<Test>().Map(x => x.ToTable("test", "core"));

        public MySqlDbContext()
            : base("name=CodeFirst")


    internal sealed class Configuration : DbMigrationsConfiguration<MySqlDbContext>
        public Configuration()
            AutomaticMigrationsEnabled = true;
            ContextKey = "DataServices.Server.Domain.Repositories.nFrallAppMSSQLDbContext1";
            AutomaticMigrationDataLossAllowed = true;

            SetSqlGenerator("MySql.Data.MySqlClient", new MySql.Data.Entity.MySqlMigrationSqlGenerator());
            CodeGenerator = new MySql.Data.Entity.MySqlMigrationCodeGenerator();

In package manager run: 

update-database -verbose

This will create the table as expected.

In global.asax.cs add the following:

MySqlDbContext context = new MySqlDbContext();

            var b = context.Tests.Any(a => a.Description == "Hello");

When querying Tests it will give an error that it can't find the table 'test1.test'. It should be searching for 'test1.core.test'

Hello Laredo Tirnanic,

Thank you for the bug report.
I could not repeat the issue on Visual Studio 2013 (C#.Net) with  MySQL Connector/Net 6.9.3. Could you please provide complete repeatable test case to confirm this issue at our end?

May it could be an equal fix to the bug #80156 
at TableFragment.cs.

I appears this issue still exists in the code and it's an easy fix. I fixed it locally with the following code which I will submit but need to know when will the fix be released.

I changed the method as follows. I'm not sure why it hasn't been fixed in over a year and new branches have the issue too.

public override void WriteSql(StringBuilder sql)
        if (DefiningQuery != null)
            sql.AppendFormat("({0})", DefiningQuery);
            string schemaName = Schema;
            string tableName = QuoteIdentifier(Table);

            if (schemaName.ToLowerInvariant().Equals("dbo"))
                schemaName = "";
            if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(schemaName) && !string.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(schemaName))
                tableName = string.Format("{0}.{1}",QuoteIdentifier(Schema), tableName);
            sql.AppendFormat("{0}", QuoteIdentifier(tableName));
