DbContextOptionsBuilder.UseInternalServiceProvider(IServiceProvider) Method

Definition

Sets the IServiceProvider that the context should resolve all of its services from. EF will create and manage a service provider if none is specified.

The service provider must contain all the services required by Entity Framework (and the database being used). The Entity Framework services can be registered using an extension method on IServiceCollection. For example, the Microsoft SQL Server provider includes an AddEntityFrameworkSqlServer() method to add the required services.

If the IServiceProvider has a DbContextOptions or DbContextOptions<TContext> registered, then this will be used as the options for this context instance.
