Is there a way to call CreateMap on multiple times on the same mapping, but make it choose the correct mapping definition based on a parameter. For example, I am mapping ObjectA to ObjectB. I want to set a property on ObjectB to the string concatenation of two properties on ObjectA. But I also in a different part of code want map ObjectA to ObjectB where the same property is only based on one of ObjectA's properties.

This question stems from a feature in Unity (dependency injection library). It allows you to name your registration with a string. And maybe this feature exists in AutoMapper, and I am not looking in the correct location.

Named profiles in DI containers are more or less a bad idea. I want to go a different direction here, but not in the form of strings.
