Testing Autorest with HttpClientFactory


In this solution I'm trying to integrate IHttpClientFactory from Microsoft.Extensions.Http with auto generated autorest clients.

Main problems are:

  • Initialization of the generated client: The generated client doesn't come with overloads which accept an HttpClient (only protected ctor)
  • In addition, we have to pass in the base uri and probably credentials

Possible Solutions:

  • Create a custom partial client class for a custom ctor to set the HttpClient
  • Change autorest runtime library to work with IHttpClientFactory => bigger change and potentially too many dependencies added
  • Change IHttpClientFactory to expose/create HttpClientHandlers => would be the optiomal solution.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
