Translate SQL query into Entity Framework Core 2.1

.net-core-2.1 c# entity-framework-core sql


I'm little bit new to Entity Framework Core v2.1, and my problem is as below.

In my case there is a table called ServiceCarrier like this:

ServiceId CarrierId
1         1  
2         1  
4         1  
1         2  
2         2  
5         2   
1         20028  
2         20028  
5         20028  

By using this SQL query, I was able to get the result set needed:

SELECT serviceid  
GROUP BY serviceid  
WHERE carrierid IN (1, 20028)  
HAVING count(*) = (SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT carrierid)  
                   FROM T 
                   WHERE carrierid IN (1, 20028));  



And I want to convert it to Entity Framework Core 2.1.

Appreciate your help in advance.

Your own solution is ok, but the problem is that condition like

.Where(sc => carriers.Any(c => c.CarrierId == sc.CarrierId))

where carriers is in-memory collection leads to client evaluation, so while it will produce a correct result, the performance won't be good.

A better way is to prepare a collection of ids and use Contains method, which is the typical way to implement the LINQ equivalent of SQL IN operator in EF (Core):

var carrierIds = carriers.Select(e => e.CarrierId);

var result = db.ServiceCarriers
    .Where(sc => carrierIds.Contains(sc.CarrierId))
    .GroupBy(sc => sc.ServiceId)
    .Where(scg => scg.Count() == db.ServiceCarriers
        .Where(sc => carrierIds.Contains(sc.CarrierId))
        .Select(sc => sc.CarrierId)
    .Select(scg => scg.Key)

The resulting SQL query is almost the same as the original:

SELECT [sc].[ServiceId] AS [Key]
FROM [ServiceCarriers] AS [sc]
WHERE [sc].[CarrierId] IN (1, 20028)
GROUP BY [sc].[ServiceId]
    FROM (
        SELECT DISTINCT [sc0].[CarrierId]
        FROM [ServiceCarriers] AS [sc0]
        WHERE [sc0].[CarrierId] IN (1, 20028)
    ) AS [t]

I was able to make a solution for that above question. My solution is shown below. And if anyone found better solution rather than this solution please share.

.Where(sc => carriers.Any(c => c.CarrierId == sc.CarrierId))
.GroupBy(scg => scg.Service)
.Where(sc1 => sc1.Count() == _dbContext.ServiceCarriers
                             .Where(scc => carriers.Any(c => 
                                          c.CarrierId == scc.CarrierId))
                             .Select(t => t.CarrierId)
).Select(sr => sr.Key)
