What does EntityFramework.Exceptions do?

When using Entity Framework Core for data access all database exceptions are wrapped in DbUpdateException. If you need to find whether the exception was caused by a unique constraint, value being too long or value missing for a required column you need to dig into the concrete DbException subclass instance and check the error code to determine the exact cause.

EntityFramework.Exceptions simplifies this by handling all the database specific details and throwing different exceptions. All you have to do is to configure DbContext by calling UseExceptionProcessor and handle the exception(s) such as UniqueConstraintException, CannotInsertNullException, MaxLengthExceededException, NumericOverflowException, ReferenceConstraintException you need.

How do I get started?

First, install the package corresponding to your database:

PM> Install-Package EntityFrameworkCore.Exceptions.SqlServer
PM> Install-Package EntityFrameworkCore.Exceptions.MySql
PM> Install-Package EntityFrameworkCore.Exceptions.MySql.Pomelo
PM> Install-Package EntityFrameworkCore.Exceptions.PostgreSQL
PM> Install-Package EntityFrameworkCore.Exceptions.Sqlite

Then in your DbContext OnConfiguring method call UseExceptionProcessor extension method:

class DemoContext : DbContext
{
    public DbSet<Product> Products { get; set; }
    public DbSet<ProductSale> ProductSale { get; set; }

    protected override void OnConfiguring(DbContextOptionsBuilder optionsBuilder)
    {
        optionsBuilder.UseExceptionProcessor();
    }
}

You will now start getting different exception for different database errors. For example when a unique constraints fails you will get UniqueConstraintException exception:

using (var demoContext = new DemoContext())
{
    demoContext.Products.Add(new Product
    {
        Name = "a",
        Price = 1
    });

    demoContext.Products.Add(new Product
    {
        Name = "a",
        Price = 1
    });

    try
    {
        demoContext.SaveChanges();
    }
    catch (UniqueConstraintException e)
    {
        //Handle exception here
    }
}
