FAQ - frequently asked questions¶
How can I ensure that only specific users can execute commands?¶
You should implement a decorator for the
ICommandBus that does the
authentication. Have a look at the decorator documentation
to see how this can be achieved.
Why isn’t there a “global sequence number” on domain events?¶
While this is easy to support in some event stores like MSSQL, it doesn’t really make sense from a domain perspective. Greg Young also has this to say on the subject:
Order is only assured per a handler within an aggregate root boundary. There is no assurance of order between handlers or between aggregates. Trying to provide those things leads to the dark side. > Greg Young
Why doesn’t EventFlow have a unit of work concept?¶
Short answer, you shouldn’t need it. But Mike has a way better answer:
In the Domain, everything flows in one direction: forward. When something bad happens, a correction is applied. The Domain doesn’t care about the database and UoW is very coupled to the db. In my opinion, it’s a pattern which is usable only with data access objects, and in probably 99% of the cases you won’t be needing it. As with the Singleton, there are better ways but everything depends on proper domain design. > Mike Mogosanu
If your case falls within the 1% case, write a decorator for the
ICommandBus that starts a transaction, use MSSQL as event store and
make sure your read models are stored in MSSQL as well.
