Using SQL Server Sequence with Entity Framework (EF 5)


SQL Server sequence has been introduced with SQL server 2012. One drawback of using sequences is that unlike identity column you needed to make a request to the server first to get your key. Another issue is that it’s not supported by Entity Framework right out the box and you need to tweak it a little bit to make it work. This article describes one of the approaches that can be used to make everything work together. I came up with 2 or 3 different approaches but I like this one the most. Big thank you to Julie Lerman for helping me come up with this solution.
