It's not the job of an ORM to do it. An ORM is not a database tool. EF, an ORM, has gone too far IMO with the migration nonsense that doesn't work,
Migrations do indeed work and are invoked through a separate command line tool.
or if it does work, and one wants to do something else other than what the migration is doing, then one is blocked and has to eliminate the blockage or find a way to work around it.
A migration is just code that submits a batch which is no different than using SSMS. One very powerful pattern in migrations is the concept of up and down. Basically, the control to undo a migration.
