GenerateEntityFrameworkPrimaryKeyPropertyMaps throws null pointer exception

See original GitHub issue

I’ve added AutoMapper.Collection and AutoMapper.Collection.EntityFramework to my project. But I’m getting a null pointer exception:

System.NullReferenceException: ‘Object reference not set to an instance of an object.’

My code is:

var mapperConfig = new MapperConfiguration(cfg =>

All of my entities have ID properties and are attributed with [Key]

You might not be mapping all your Primary Keys to properties on your Model. All primary keys need to be mapped to the model, so that they can figure out if they are equal to each other by a unique identifier.

If that’s not the case can you provide a gist of it failing so I can replicate what’s going wrong?

hi, we got the same issue and it was as @TylerCarlson1 stated, an issue with our entity mapping to our contracts. Is it possible to improve the codebase to throw a more understandable exception at this point?
