EntityTableService is a part of EntityStorageServices, an experimental set of tools to manage your entities in Azure Storage Cloud services. Specifically, EntityTableService help you to manage pure entities in Azure table storage. It is based on the official Azure storage SDK Client.

This project is focused on entities abstraction and performance.


  • Pure and strongly typed Entity: no explicit dependency with ITableEntity interface
  • Custom indexes
  • Indexable computed props linked to an Entity
  • Custom metadatas per entity
  • Lightweight and extensible query expression builder (no dependency with ITableEntity)
  • Entity table observers

How it works?

EntityTableClient generate and manage entity projections to store custom indexes. Internally, it use Azure storage ETG feature (entity transaction group) to keep projections synchronized with the main entity.

Remark: Azure emulator required by default

EntityTableClient configuration example

    var options = new EntityTableClientOptions(ConnectionString, $"{nameof(PersonEntity)}Table", maxConcurrentInsertionTasks: 10);

    var entityClient = EntityTableClient.CreateEntityTableClient<PersonEntity>(options, config =>

                //Partition key could be composed with any string based values
                .SetPartitionKey(p => p.AccountId)
                //Define an entity prop as primary key
                .SetPrimaryKey(p => p.PersonId)
                //Add additionnal indexes
                .AddIndex(p => p.LastName)
                .AddIndex(p => p.Distance)
                .AddIndex(p => p.Enabled)
                //props couldbe ignored (for both read and write operations)
                .AddIgnoredProp(p => p.Created)
                //Add computed props, computed on each updates.
                .AddComputedProp("_IsInFrance", p => (p.Address.State == "France"))
                .AddComputedProp("_MoreThanOneAddress", p => (p.OtherAddress.Count > 1))
                .AddComputedProp("_CreatedNext6Month", p => (p.Created > DateTimeOffset.UtcNow.AddMonths(-6)))
                .AddComputedProp("_FirstLastName3Chars", p => p.LastName.ToLower().Substring(0, 3))
                //Native props values could be overrided by computed props
                .AddComputedProp(nameof(PersonEntity.FirstName), p => p.FirstName.ToUpperInvariant())
                //Add index for any entity or computed props

Usage example: Query the Azure storage with entityTableClient

   //Query entities with configured primarykey
    _ = await entityClient.GetByIdAsync(

   //Query entities with any props 
    _ = await entityClient.GetAsync(
                w => w.Where(p => p.LastName).Equal(person.LastName));

  //Query entities by indexed prop
    _ = await entityClient.GetByAsync(
                p => p.LastName,

    //Query entities with computed prop
    _ = await entityClient.GetAsync(
                w => w.Where("_FirstLastName3Chars").Equal("arm"));
   //Query entities by indexed computed prop
   _ = await entityClient.GetByAsync(
               "_FirstLastName3Chars", "arm");
