I successfully created a Job record using EF Core and ASP.NET 5 MVC. After hitting the create button a table list of unassignedUsers that DO NOT contain matching ID of the newly created record are supposed to appear but it won't.

Trying to do this in JobsController.GetUnassignedUsersJobId(int? ID).
Here is my code:

Views/Jobs/Create.cshtml

ASP
@model Pitcher.Models.Job
@{ 
    var user = new User();
}
@{
    ViewData["Title"] = "Create";
}

<h1>Create</h1>

<h4>Job</h4>
<hr />
<div class="row">
    <div class="col-md-4">        
        <form asp-action="Create">
            <div asp-validation-summary="ModelOnly" class="text-danger"></div>
            <div class="form-group">
                <label asp-for="JobTitle" class="control-label"></label>
                <input asp-for="JobTitle" class="form-control" />
                <span asp-validation-for="JobTitle" class="text-danger"></span>
            </div>
            <div class="form-group">

                <span asp-validation-for="JobDescription" class="text-danger"></span>
            </div>
            <div class="form-group">

                <span asp-validation-for="JobStartDate" class="text-danger"></span>
            </div>
            <div class="form-group">
                <label asp-for="JobDeadline" class="control-label"></label>
                <input asp-for="JobDeadline" class="form-control" />
                <span asp-validation-for="JobDeadline" class="text-danger"></span>

            <div class="form-group">

}


What I have tried:

I searched on Google and do not know how to do it.



These are the actions I'm trying to make occur.

1. Click 'submit'.

2. Select all of users who are capable of being assigned with this job.

3. Exclude the user who has been assigned with this kind of job from step1.

4. ASP generates an ID for the record (which it is successfully doing).

5. ASP Saves record to database (which it is successfully doing).

6. ASP then gets the most newly created record by ID. (I don't know how to do that.)

7. That ID will be stationed in memory and used to render the unassignedUsersTable to screen.

Then you should just be focusing on the "query" (since you say everything else works), and not snow the rest of us under with irrelevant code.

Shortened the question, by taking out irrelevant methods and class. I left the models as is as I am not sure they are irrelevant.
