ODPM 21c : InvalidCastException In EF Core Selecting Column Of TIMESTAMP WITH LOCAL TIME ZONE (Doc ID 3010998.1)

Last updated on MARCH 20, 2024

While using ODP.NET it is expected that, TIMESTAMP WITH LOCAL TIME ZONE column should be mapped to scaffolded model. But instead the code throws InvalidCastException.

Currently Oracle is mapping ‘Timestamp with Local Time zone’ to .NET type DateTimeOffset during DB first (Scaffolding). However this seems to create some issue when trying to fetch the ‘Timestamp with Local Time zone’ column data.
