Hello everyone,

i need to help in Entity Framework. I have multiple ConnectionStrings example "DB_A" and "DB_B"
i have to try enrich the Data from DB_A tables into DB_B tables. How can i do this ?

What I have tried:

i use Connectionmanager in .net core

What on earth does "enrich" mean in the context of databases?

i mean "save"

"Copy" data from one to the other?

i have two DbContext and i use RabbitMQ. I Post the Data into DB_A Table and the RabbitMQ processed that as a Message. And this Message must Save to the DB_B. The Tables from A and B is the same.

i have to try work with 2 dbContext. How can I do this ?

Two different physical tables. You post to both contexts. The alternative is to copy from one context to another. Your mental model of EF seems to be the issue here.

Yes but I have different Databases.
DB_a is a Test for rabbitMQ. Final Database is DB_A.
How can I copy from one to another context. ?

EF does not care about your "test" or "production". It deals with data contexts; one or many; and each context can refer to the same database or a different database. A different connection can be associated with each context; i.e. different databases.

Maybe this helps:
I uses a ContextBase and multiple implementations (e.g. SqLite, InMemory, SQL Server).
I didn't check the copy method, but this should work or be a useful base:

using Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore;
using System.Linq;

namespace Foo
    public class CopyData
        public async void CopyAToB()
            using var source = new FooSqliteContext("d:\\source.sqlite");
            using var target = new FooInMemoryContext();

            var sourceEntites = await source.Entites.ToArrayAsync();

            //DTO if needed...
            //var targetDto = sourceEntites.Select(sourceEntity => new FooContextBase.Entity() { Name = sourceEntity.Name });

    public abstract class FooContextBase : DbContext
        public class Entity
            public int Id { get; set; }
            public string Name { get; set; }
        public DbSet<Entity> Entites { get; set; }

    public class FooInMemoryContext : FooContextBase
        protected override void OnConfiguring(DbContextOptionsBuilder optionsBuilder)
        => optionsBuilder.UseInMemoryDatabase("InMemoryDb");
    public class FooSqliteContext : FooContextBase
        public string SqLiteDbPath { get; set; }

        public FooSqliteContext(string dbPathAndFile)
            SqLiteDbPath = dbPathAndFile;
        protected override void OnConfiguring(DbContextOptionsBuilder options)
            => options.UseSqlite($"Data Source={SqLiteDbPath}");
