Protecting static files in ASP.NET Core using custom middleware
Restricting access to specific static content with middleware in ASP.NET Core
0
The most common scenario for static files is just to serve them as they are without any additional hassle or access rules.To serve static content which are often just images, css, javascript or other common static web content, you just need to involve static content middleware in your ASP.NET core application pipeline. Adding static content in ASP.NET Core applications is as simple as adding wwwroot folder to root of your web application and adding StaticFiles middleware to your pipeline. By default these files will become publicly available, but in the further text we'll deal with how restrict access to these static files you have in your application. ...read more
Supporting multiple authentication schemes in asp.net core webapi
Using more than one authentication schemes in webapi projects
0
Is is not so often than you have to use more than one authentication schemes in your project, but there are some corner cases when you have to do so. One of it is a scenario where you are supporting some weaker authentication schema like basic http authentication where credentials are supplied pretty much on every request. This kind of loosen security schema is to some limited extend suitable for internal APIs meaning that no other than users or most likely application within your organization network will access...read more
Using interceptors with dependency injection in Entity Framework Core
EF Core interceptors via dependency injection in ASP.NET 5
0
I while ago I wrote an article on how to Access multiple databases from the same DbContext in EF Core which relies on interceptors to mutate the SQL query diring execution. This code works just fine and it updates the command prior to it's execution, but it lacks in option to inject registered services to it's constructor as i used new keyword to initialize class instances. Adding interceptor without dependency injection ...read more
Implementing soft delete in EF Core using triggers
Entity soft delete implementation in EF Core
0
Implementation approach for soft delete is more-less straight forward thing. Instead of deleting data record, you introduce a flag which will mark the record as deleted and you can simply filter out on it and not show the data with the flag set. This way you do not loose data, but you restrict the end user to see it. This way of "deleting" data records, or better said marking them as deleted applies for certain types of applications, but sometime this requirement may come later as a new feature while the actual delete is in place...read more

Mocking view mapped DbSets with XUnit in EF Core
Writing unit tests for view bounded entities in EF Core
 
0
Using in-memory DbContext is a great way to mock your actual DbContext in unit tests. You basically initialize the instance of your DbContext and seed some random data before you assert the result of your repository method. Now the problem occurs if you are mapping database view to an entity...read more
Setting up SQL Server IDistributedCache with migration in ASP.NET Core
Embedding SQL Server caching in a project with EFCore migration
0
Caching data using Microsoft SQL Server may not be the most popular way of caching data because of the performance comparing to caching data to Redis, but it is maybe the most convenient way to keep your state of the application outside the process itself. Beside, if you are already using SQL Server database, you can just move the caching infrastructure to a separate schema inside the same database and keep using it until requirements are met for cache storage of better performance (like Redis for example). This makes infrastructure not so complex and less dependent, again until the requirements for something faster are met. ...read more

It is not uncommon to have a requirement to access tables or views in different databases in the same query. In order to be able to do your joins on tables or views in different databases you need to do it in the same connection instance which is bound to DbContext, therefore this access as to be accomplished from the same DbContext instance...read more
Seeding data in EF Core using SQL scripts
Another way of seeding data in EF Core
0
Not so while ago I wrote an article on Seeding data with Entity Framework Core using migrations. This approach relies on EF Core migrations to ensure seeding of specific data is done only once using __EFMigrationsHistory table to track structural migrations as well as data seeding migrations. In large number of cases this approach works just fine and you do not need to do any adjustments or add any additional tables, just use migrations mechanism out of the box...read more

Seeding data with Entity Framework Core using migrations
Using EF Core migrations to seed the data
0
As much as it is important for testing the functionality of the application, data seeding can also be used to pre-load some values like lookups not only to development and test environment but also to populate these values in production as well. Seeding of data can be done in several ways and in this article I will go through two ways of seeding data. Both of them have their pros and cons and it is up to you to pick the way you want to have your data pre-seeded in your application database. ...read more
