EFCore Bulk Insert & SQLite In Memory: no such table: INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS"

c# entity-framework-core in-memory-database sqlbulkcopy sqlite


I'm using EFCore BulkExtensions 2.5.0 with Entity Framework Core 2.2.3 and EFCore.SQLite 2.2.6.

I have code like this:

// Repo that throws exception on BulkInsert
public class UserRepository
   private readonly IDbContextProvider<ReportContext> _dbContextProvider;

   public async Sync(IList<User> users)
        await _dbContextProvider.Context.BulkInserOrUpdateAsync(users);

// Poco Model
public class User
   public string Id {get;set;}
   public string Name {get; set;}

// Simple DbContext
public class ReportsContext : DbContext
   public DbSet<User> Users { get; set; }

My application code (which uses EFCore.Sql) runs this just fine. But when my test code runs using SQLite in-memory, I get an exception:


Microsoft.Data.Sqlite.SqliteException : SQLite Error 1: 'no such table: INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS'.

at Microsoft.Data.Sqlite.SqliteException.ThrowExceptionForRC(Int32 rc, sqlite3 db)

at MyCode.Repositories.UserRepository.<>c__DisplayClass5_0.<b__0>d.MoveNext() in C:\projects\MyCode\Repositories\UserRepository.cs:line 48

INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS isn't part of my data model and isn't something I'm trying to create or work with. Do I need to configure or tweak EF Core or SQLite to get it to support bulk operations when operation in-memory mode?

I've tried turning on EF Core logging and can see my Db Model being processed and tables being created, but no output on the bulk operations, so I'm unsure what generated SQL statements are looking for this Information_Schema.Columns table.

Accepted Answer

Looks like this is a bug in EFCore.BulkExtensions for 2.5.0 where it didn't have full SQLite support. It works with version 2.6.4: https://github.com/borisdj/EFCore.BulkExtensions/issues/308
