execute stored procedure in entity Framework Core without expecting map to dbset

.net-core c# entity-framework-core stored-procedures


I am working on .NET CORE, Entity Framework core. I have stored procedure that I need to execute from .NET class. My stored procedure takes number of 'Context' and I don't know how to deal this, although I have dataView which is final exception.

I wounder if I can use my dataView instead of context.dataModel class, current implementation (Context.Claims.FromSql)


public class ClaimDataView
    public Guid ClaimId { get; set; }
    public int IdNum { get; set; }
    public string Value { get; set; }
    public DateTime ExpirationDate { get; set; }
    public ClaimAttributionActions Action { get; set; }
    public bool ActiveStateForRole { get; set; }


stored-Procedure call

public Guid UserId { get; set; }
public Guid ClientId { get; set; }
public Guid ConsultationId { get; set; }

  var userParam = new SqlParameter("@UserVal", UserId);
  var clientParam = new SqlParameter("@ClientVal", ConsultationId);
  var consultationParam = new SqlParameter("@ConsultationVal", ConsultationId);

 //**************need help in following line
  var query = Context.Claims.FromSql("EXECUTE dbo.ListUserClaims @userId=@UserVal, @clientId=@ClientVal, @consultationId=@ConsultationVal"
            , userParam, clientParam, consultationParam);

new update

moduleContext Class

  protected override void OnModelCreating(ModelBuilder modelBuilder)
       //other models....

Stored Procedure executing from

 var query = Context.Query<UserDataView>().FromSql("EXECUTE dbo.ListUserClaims @userId=@UserVal, @clientId=@ClientVal, @consultationId=@ConsultationVal"
            , userParam, clientParam, consultationParam);


System.InvalidOperationException: Cannot create a DbSet for 'UserDataView' because this type is not included in the model for the context.

Accepted Answer

You can utilize the Query Types introduced in EF Core 2.1.

First you need to register you class as query type:


Then you can use Context.Query<ClaimDataView>() in place of your current Context.Claims:

var query = Context.Query<ClaimDataView>().FromSql(...);

Update (EF Core 3.x+):

Starting with EF Core 3.0, query types have been consolidated with entity types and renamed to Keyless Entity Types, so the corresponding code is



var query = Context.Set<ClaimDataView>().FromSql(...);

If you are not on version 2.1, you will need to add:

public DbSet<ClaimDataView> ClaimDataView { get; set; }

to your moduleContext. And add NotMapped to your class:

public class ClaimDataView
