Note: I am using MySQL & its sample database 'World'


"frameworks": {
    "netstandard1.6": {
      "dependencies": {
        "NETStandard.Library": "1.6.1",

using System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations.Schema;
[Table("Country")]   // This is actual table name in database
    public class Countries
        public string Code { get; set; }
        public string Name { get; set; }
        public string Continent { get; set; }
        public string Region { get; set; }
        public int IndepYear { get; set; }

public class WorldContext : DbContext
         DbSet<Countries> Countries {get;set;}

        protected override void OnConfiguring(DbContextOptionsBuilder optionBuilder)
        {            optionBuilder.UseMySQL("server=localhost;userid=root;pwd=Newuser123;port=3306;database=world;sslmode=none;");

When I write code to fill & fetch Countries using linq, I am getting error like 'Countries' table does not exist.

However, when I comment the [Table("Country")] from model class, and add following code under context class, it works:

protected override void OnModelCreating(ModelBuilder modelBuilder)

NOTE: created issue for same on github - https://github.com/aspnet/EntityFramework/issues/7319

Detailed steps provided in description

Suggested fix:
I tried changing MySQL native package to "Pomelo.EntityFrameworkCore.MySql": "1.1.1-prerelease-10009", and TableAttribute works.

Could you please give it a try with this version
The 7.0.6-ir31 does not support the latest EF Core version.

Posted by developer:
Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Connector/NET 6.10.2 release, and here's the changelog entry:

EF Core: Using System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations.Schema.TableAttribute
to initialize a new class instance that specified the name of an existing
MySQL table produced incorrect table name and column name mappings.

Thank you for the bug report.
