Customizing Database

Things you can do to customize the database
Per default the generator automatically creates all the tables, columns and tries to find the relationships between automatically. This is all handled by EntityFramework. However, there are times when this is not enough or not working, here's how you can customize this behaviour:

Using a custom table name

[Api("/people", ApiMethodsToGenerate.All)]
[Table("MyFancyNewTableName")]
public class Person : IObjectBase<Guid> {
}
As we're within .NET Core we can use all of the EntityFramework attributes as usually, just add a [Table("")] attribute to map your class to a different table, everything else works out of the box
​

Full customization

Based on EntityFramework model builder you can also fully customize your class behaviour, relationship and a lot more, here's how to do this:
[Api("/people", ApiMethodsToGenerate.All)]
public class Person : IObjectBase<Guid>, IEntityTypeConfiguration<Person>
{
public Guid Id { get; set; } = new Guid();
​
public string Name { get; set; }
​
// Set custom stuff as desired similar to DBContext model builder
// All model building options are available
public void Configure(EntityTypeBuilder<Person> builder)
{
builder.ToTable("TableName");
builder.HasMany("relatedObject");
...
}
}
