Logging to elmah.io from Entity Framework Core

Both elmah.io and Entity Framework Core supports logging through Microsoft.Extensions.Logging. To log all errors happening inside Entity Framework Core, install the Elmah.Io.Extensions.Logging NuGet package:

Install-Package Elmah.Io.Extensions.Logging

Then add elmah.io to a new or existing LoggerFactory:

var loggerFactory = new LoggerFactory()
    .AddElmahIo("API_KEY", new Guid("LOG_ID"));

Replace API_KEY with your API key (Where is my API key?) and LOG_ID with the log ID (Where is my log ID?) that should receive errors from Entity Framework.

When using Entity Framework Core from ASP.NET Core, you never create your own LoggerFactory. Factories are provided through DI by ASP.NET Core. Check out this sample for details.

Finally, enable logging in Entity Framework Core:

optionsBuilder
    .UseLoggerFactory(loggerFactory)
    .UseSqlServer(...);

(UseSqlServer included for illustration purposes only - elmah.io works with any provider)

That's it! All errors happening in Entity Framework Core, are now logged in elmah.io.
