Question

Today we currently have a statement like this:

var Query = (from dp in db.Patients
            select dp);

var UserID = User.Identity.GetUserId();

if (User.IsInRole("Administrator"))
{
    Query = Query.Where(x => x.AdministratorID == UserID);
}
if (User.IsInRole("Counselor"))
{
    Query = Query.Where(x => x.CounselorID == UserID);
}
if (User.IsInRole("Physician"))
{
    Query = Query.Where(x => x.PhysicianID == UserID);
}

The problem is we have Users that can have multiple roles. If a User is both an Counselor and Physician we want the system to pull back all patients where CounselorID == UserID or PhysicianID == UserID.

How can this be accomplished dynamically if we don't know what role a user will have when the page is loaded?

The current .Where clause just uses an AND statement we need an OR statment.

Ideally there would be a solution like this:

if (User.IsInRole("Administrator"))
{
     Query = Query.Where(x => x.AdministratorID == UserID);
}
if (User.IsInRole("Counselor"))
{
     Query = Query.WhereOr(x => x.CounselorID == UserID);
}
if (User.IsInRole("Physician"))
{
     Query = Query.WhereOr(x => x.PhysicianID == UserID);
}

Accepted Answer

You can build a predicate incrementally.

Func<Pantient, bool> predicate = p => false;

if (User.IsInRole("Administrator"))
{
    var oldPredicate = predicate;
    predicate = p => oldPredicate(p) || p.AdministratorID == UserID;
}

if (User.IsInRole("Counselor"))
{
    var oldPredicate = predicate;
    predicate = p => oldPredicate(p) || p.CounselorID == UserID;
}


var query = db.Patients.Where(predicate);

would this work?

var query = Patients.Where(
    x => (User.IsInRole("Administrator") && x.AdministratorID == UserID)
      || (User.IsInRole("Counselor") && x.CounselorID == UserID)
      || (User.IsInRole("Physician") && x.PhysicianID == UserID)
    );
