I am using DeVart DotConnect for Oracle Entity Developer to create my model. Everything is working properly, but I need to use some user defined functions from Oracle.

Is it possible to do this and if it is, what are the steps to make it work?

As far as I know you cannot use functions directly with EF. With ODP.Net you can map stored procedures to EF via function import (see for example:[^]) and you can use functions of course in custom SQL statements for example if you embed a scalar function call inside a statement.

One workaround could be that you create a proper SQL statement with functions you want to use and create a view based on that statement.
