Entity Framework Core Plus Audit - Soft Add & Soft Delete
You need to keep an audit when a soft add/restore or a soft delete event happens.
Soft Add & Soft Delete methods:
When an entity satisfies the predicate, the audit entry state will be changed from "EntityModified" to either "EntitySoftAdded" or "EntitySoftDeleted".
// using Z.EntityFramework.Plus; // Don't forget to include this. // Globally AuditManager.DefaultConfiguration.SoftDeleted<ISoftDelete>(x => x.IsDeleted); // By Instance var audit = new Audit(); audit.CreatedBy = "ZZZ Projects"; // Optional audit.Configuration.SoftDeleted<ISoftDelete>(x => x.IsDeleted); ctx.SaveChanges(audit);
