    I have a case object and a case can have many relationships. They are poi's and vessels. however when I come to the poi create I need to no the case id and the realtion ship Id. I have been using session but when Im creating the object it wont no the relationship so how do I avoid this error do 

    The case has already been created and they click a button to get the to the create like so

    I need some way of passing the case Id which would be Model.Id  here to the Poi Create function so that i can avoid this error.

    Please see small screen cast of issue


    Here is the error I am getting. I am using asp.net core 3.1 and EF Core 3.1

    DbUpdateException: An error occurred while updating the entries. See the inner exception for details.
    SqlException: The INSERT statement conflicted with the FOREIGN KEY constraint "FK_Pois_RelationShips_RelationShipId". The conflict occurred in database "MISSystem", table "dbo.RelationShips", column 'Id'. The statement has been terminated.

    Hi roguenidb

    The reason why this error is realistic is that you added RelationShipId in the Pois_RelationShips table

    but the ID does not exist in your RelationShips table, which will cause foreign key constraint conflicts.

    If you want to add RelationShipId, you should get your RelationShips table ID in. How do you store your data through Session?

    Best Regards
