Does EF upsert have to be done manually?

I want to upsert reference members of an existing entity.

Do I have to write specific code for the upsert?

meaning: I have to check if I’m handling an existing reference member or a new one.

Is there any other simple way to do so?

What happens when you do only Save ?

  public void SaveCofiguration(MamConfiguration_V1Ui itemUi)
{
var itemEf = mMamConfiguration_V1UiToEfConvertor.ConvertToNewEf(itemUi);
using (var maMDBEntities = new MaMDBEntities())
{
IDal<MamConfiguration_V1> mamConfigurationDal = mDalFactory.GetDal<MamConfiguration_V1>(maMDBEntities);
mamConfigurationDal.Save(itemEf);
}
}
public MamConfiguration_V1 GetById(object id)
{
id.ThrowIfNull("id");
int configurationId = Convert.ToInt32(id);
var result =
mMaMDBEntities.MamConfiguration_V1.SingleOrDefault(item => item.ConfigurationId == configurationId);
return result;
}
public MamConfiguration_V1 Save(MamConfiguration_V1 item)
{
item.ThrowIfNull("item");
var itemFromDB = GetById(item.ConfigurationId);
if (itemFromDB != null)
{
UpdateEfItem(itemFromDB, item);
// if (mMaMDBEntities.ObjectStateManager.GetObjectStateEntry(itemFromDB).State == EntityState.Detached)
// {
// mMaMDBEntities.MamConfiguration_V1.AddObject(itemFromDB);
// }
// Attached object tracks modifications automatically
mMaMDBEntities.SaveChanges();
return item;
}

private void UpdateEfItem(MamConfiguration_V1 itemFromDb, MamConfiguration_V1 itemFromUi)
{
itemFromDb.UpdatedDate = DateTime.Now;
itemFromDb.Description = itemFromUi.Description;
itemFromDb.StatusId = itemFromUi.StatusId;
itemFromDb.Name = itemFromUi.Name;
itemFromDb.NumericTraffic = itemFromUi.NumericTraffic;
itemFromDb.PercentageTraffic = itemFromUi.PercentageTraffic;
itemFromDb.Type = itemFromUi.NumericTraffic;
foreach (var item in itemFromDb.MamConfigurationToBrowser_V1.ToList())
{
if (itemFromUi.MamConfigurationToBrowser_V1.All(b => b.BrowserVersionId != item.BrowserVersionId))
{
mMaMDBEntities.MamConfigurationToBrowser_V1.DeleteObject(item);
}
}
for (int i = 0; i < itemFromUi.MamConfigurationToBrowser_V1.Count; i++)
{
var element = itemFromUi.MamConfigurationToBrowser_V1.ElementAt(i);
var item = itemFromDb.MamConfigurationToBrowser_V1.SingleOrDefault(b => b.BrowserVersionId == element.BrowserVersionId);
if (item != null)
{
// copy properties from element to item
}
else
{
element.Browser = mMaMDBEntities.Browsers.Single(browserItem =>
browserItem.BrowserID == element.BrowserID);
//element.MamConfiguration_V1 = itemFromDb;
//have also tried: element.MamConfiguration_V1 = null;
//element.MamConfiguration_V1Reference = null;
itemFromDb.MamConfigurationToBrowser_V1.Add(element);
}
}
}

But I would have expecte Save(itemUi) and SaveChanges() to work fine. No?

public void InsertOrUpdate(DbContext context, UEntity entity)
{
context.Entry(entity).State = entity.Id == 0 ?
EntityState.Added :
EntityState.Modified;
context.SaveChanges();
}
