Dapper Plus AuditModeType

Description

The AuditModeType enum represents if all properties should be included or excluded from the auditing. The default value is AuditModeType.IncludeAll.

You can include or exclude specific properties with the ColumnMappingAuditModeType enum.

// The namespace is different because the https://bulk-operations.net/ library is used under the hood..
namespace Z.BulkOperations
{
    /// <summary>The `AuditModeType` enum represents if all properties should be included or excluded from the auditing. The default value is `AuditModeType.IncludeAll`.</summary>
    public enum AuditModeType
    {
        /// <summary>The name/value that represents if all entity properties are included (Default Value).</summary>
        IncludeAll = 0,
		
        /// <summary>The name/value that represents if all entity properties are excluded.</summary>
        ExcludeAll = 1
    }
}

Example

We will demonstrate how to exclude all properties to include only specific properties.

Mapping

We will use the following mapping:

  • AuditMode(AuditModeType.ExcludeAll): To exclude all properties.
  • AuditMode(x => new { x.CustomerID, x.Name }, ColumnMappingAuditModeType.Include): To include specific properties.

Execute

We will execute a BulkMerge on a list that contains 1 new customer and 2 existing customers.

Code

// Mapping
DapperPlusManager.Entity<Customer>().Table("Customer")
	.AuditMode(AuditModeType.ExcludeAll)
	.AuditMode(x => new { x.CustomerID, x.Name }, ColumnMappingAuditModeType.Include);
	
// Execute
List<AuditEntry> auditEntries = new List<AuditEntry>(); 
connection.UseBulkOptions(options => 
{ 
    options.UseAudit = true;
    options.AuditEntries = auditEntries; 
})
.BulkMerge(list); 

// Result
FiddleHelper.WriteTable(auditEntries.SelectMany(x => x.Values));

Try it: .NET Core | .NET Framework

Result

We outputted all AuditEntryItem auditing metadata. The only information that appears is about the CustomerID and Name property.
