How to Bulk Update records in Entity Framework?

bulkupdate c# entity-framework entity-framework-extended linq

Question

I am trying to bulk update records using Entity Framework. I have tried Entity Framework.Extensions Update method.

The Update method is able to bulk update for a set of records with same set of update values.

Example:

           Id -  Quantity
Record 1 - A  -  10
Record 2 - B  -  20
Record 3 - C  -  30

We can bulk update all the above records by simple calling

Records.Update(new => Record { Quantity = 100 });

How can I bulk update each record with different quantity using Entityframework.Extensions or in any other approach, which completes the bulk update faster?

If you don't want to use an SQL statement, you can use the Attach method in order to update an entity without having to load it first :

using (myDbEntities db = new myDbEntities())
{
    try
    {
      //disable detection of changes to improve performance
      db.Configuration.AutoDetectChangesEnabled = false;

      //for all the entities to update...
      MyObjectEntity entityToUpdate = new MyObjectEntity() {Id=123, Quantity=100};
      db.MyObjectEntity.Attach(entityToUpdate);

      //then perform the update
      db.SaveChanges();
    }
    finally
    {
      //re-enable detection of changes
      db.Configuration.AutoDetectChangesEnabled = true;
    }
}

Use ExecuteSqlCommand:

using (yourDbEntities db = new yourDbEntities())
{
    db.Database.ExecuteSqlCommand("UPDATE YourTABLE SET Quantity = {0} WHERE Id = {1}", quantity, id);
}

Or ExecuteStoreCommand:

yourDbContext.ExecuteStoreCommand("UPDATE YourTABLE SET Quantity = {0} WHERE Id = {1}", quantity, id);
