After installing the ODT and updating it after to work with VS2012 to ODAC 11.2.0.3.20 with Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio on the same Oracle Client Home

I was able to create the EDMX model , but the synonyms stayed hidden to me on the wizard of the VS (by the way at VS 2010 also) .

The connection works perfect and gets me the regular tables , views and stored procedures .

The trouble is with the rest .

From my approach to Oracle I’ve got a couple of links and a statement that it’s Microsoft’s product that doesn’t support the import at the initialization wizard.

The links provided –

1) Make Entity Framework Designer support Synonyms  – we are not Code First – the schema exists and running

2)A problem to view synonym of Oracle in the Entity Data Model Designer – can’t see the synonyms , not with dba not with any user ..

 

Any ideas will be appreciated!
