How to implement IModelCacheKeyFactory in EF Core

entity-framework-core schema

Question

The story: in our multi-tenant app (one PostgreSql db, multiple schemas) we need to use one DbContext against multiple schemas.

What I tried: holding a cache (Dictionary, where key is schema name, value is the context for that schema). When instatiating new context for another schema I can see that dbContext schema is still set to previous schema provided. I assume the model in context is cached internally by context type, so that is the reason I see this behavior?

So above doesn't seem to work and I found that implementing IModelCacheKeyFactory should do the trick. Does anyone know what should go into Create method though? There are no samples nor documentation anywhere.

What I found: Dynamically changing schema in Entity Framework Core but it answers for EF6, so not much help.

Accepted Answer

Here is an example.

Derived DbContext that replaces it's ModelCacheKey (and factory) with a Custom one.

class MyDbContext : DbContext
{
    public MyDbContext(string schema)
    {
        Schema = schema;
    }

    public string Schema { get; }

    protected override void OnConfiguring(DbContextOptionsBuilder options)
        => options
            .UseSqlServer("...")
            .ReplaceService<IModelCacheKeyFactory, MyModelCacheKeyFactory>();

    protected override void OnModelCreating(ModelBuilder modelBuilder)
    {
        modelBuilder.HasDefaultSchema(Schema);

        // ...
    }
}

The factory that creates the Context with a specific key.

class MyModelCacheKeyFactory : IModelCacheKeyFactory
{
    public object Create(DbContext context)
        => new MyModelCacheKey(context);
}

The custom ModelCacheKey per context.

class MyModelCacheKey : ModelCacheKey
{
    string _schema;

    public MyModelCacheKey(DbContext context)
        : base(context)
    {
        _schema = (context as MyDbContext)?.Schema;
    }

    protected override bool Equals(ModelCacheKey other)
        => base.Equals(other)
            && (other as MyModelCacheKey)?._schema == _schema;

    public override int GetHashCode()
    {
        var hashCode = base.GetHashCode() * 397;
        if (_schema != null)
        {
            hashCode ^= _schema.GetHashCode();
        }

        return hashCode;
    }
}
