AutoWrapper is a simple, yet customizable global HTTP exception handler and response wrapper for ASP.NET Core APIs. It uses an ASP.NET Core middleware to intercept incoming HTTP requests and automatically wraps the responses for you by providing a consistent response format for both successful and error results. The goal is to let you focus on your business code specific requirements and let the wrapper automatically handle the HTTP response. This can speedup the development time when building your APIs while enforcing own standards for your HTTP responses.

Main features:
  • Exception handling.
  • A configurable middleware options to configure the wrapper.
  • ModelState validation error handling (support both Data Annotation and FluentValidation).
  • A configurable API exception.
  • A consistent response format for Result and Errors.
  • A detailed Result response.
  • A detailed Error response.
  • A configurable HTTP StatusCodes and messages.
  • Add Logging support for Request, Response and Exceptions.
  • Add support for Problem Details exception format.
  • Add support for ignoring action methods that don't need to be wrapped using [AutoWrapIgnore] filter attribute.

Breaking changes

  • This release supports .NET 5 and .NET 6
  • Middleware has been renamed from UseApiResponseAndExceptionWrapper to UseAutoWrapper. Make sure to update your Startup.cs to use the new name.
  • ProblemDetails is now the default exception format
  • UseApiProblemDetailsException has been renamed to DisableProblemDetailsException
  • Removed Newtonsoft.Json dependency and replaced it with System.Text.Json
  • Use the interface IApiResponse model instead of the concrete ApiResponse model for returning responses using the default format. This allows you to add your own properties that will wrapped within the Result property.
  • AutoWrapIgnore and RequestDataLogIgnore attributes now leaves under AutoWrapper.Attributes namespace. The implementation was changed from using IActionFilter to use Attribute, eliminating all the request header logic.
  • The following options has been removed:
    • ApiVersion
    • ReferenceLoopHandling
    • UseCustomSchema

ReferenceLoopHandling and DefaultContractResolver aren't still supported in .NET 5 that's why handling reference loop and ApiResponse property mappings will not be supported when targetting .NET 5. .NET Core 3.1 will still use Newtonsoft.Json and it's only supported by AutoWrapper ⇐ v4.5.1


  1. Download and Install the latest AutoWrapper.Core from NuGet or via CLI:
PM> Install-Package AutoWrapper.Core -Version 5.0.0-rc-04
  1. Declare the following namespace within Startup.cs
using AutoWrapper;
  1. Register the middleware below within the Configure() method of Startup.cs "before" the UseRouting() middleware:

That's simple! Here’s how the response is going to look like for the default ASP.NET Core API template “WeatherForecastController” API:

    "message": "GET Request successful.",
    "result": [

Unwrapping the Result from .NET Client

AutoWrapper.Server is simple library that enables you unwrap the Result property of the AutoWrapper's ApiResponse object in your C# .NET Client code. The goal is to deserialize the Result object directly to your matching Model without having you to create the ApiResponse schema.

For example:

public async Task<IEnumerable<PersonDTO>> Get()
    var client = HttpClientFactory.Create();
    var httpResponse = await client.GetAsync("https://localhost:5001/api/v1/people");

    IEnumerable<PersonDTO> people = null;
    if (httpResponse.IsSuccessStatusCode)
        var jsonString = await httpResponse.Content.ReadAsStringAsync();
        people = Unwrapper.Unwrap<IEnumerable<PersonDTO>>(jsonString);

    return people;

For more information, see: AutoWrapper.Server
