    * After changing you models, you can add additional migrations 
    [see docs](

* Run with SqlServer:
    * To run under sql server:
        * npm run clean
        * Delete `Migrations` folder
        * Flip the switch in appsettings.json called `useSqLite` to `false`, this should point to use local sql server setup as default instance. (See appsettings.json file for connection string)
