Should AutoMapper be used to take data from ViewModel and save back into a database model?
I know the opposite practice is good software practice: to have Automapper to extract database models, and place them in Viewmodels for front end web applications.
I was reading this general article here: The article was not specifically about Automapper, but want to validate if the opinion is true. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/35959968/best-way-to-project-viewmodel-back-into-model
"I believe best way to map from ViewModel to Entity is not to use AutoMapper for this. AutoMapper is a great tool to use for mapping objects without using any other classes other than static. Otherwise, code gets messier and messier with each added service, and at some point you won't be able to track what caused your field update, collection update, etc."
