Proper way to create domain models and viewmodels in microservices

help you fix your problem I am going to assume that you are using a Web Api but the same principles apply to an MVC app. I normally have a mapper layer that takes a domain object and maps it to a view model or dto. This way you can reuse the mapper anytime you want to return the same view model. So if you make a change to the view model it is all located in one place.
See code below to answer question 1.
//Fake view model
public class CalendarEventViewModel
    public int EventId { get; set; }

    public string Title { get; set; }

    public DateTime? StartDateTimeUtc { get; set; }

    public DateTime? EndDateTimeUtc { get; set; }

    public string Summary { get; set; }

    public bool IsApproved { get; set; }

    public string TimeZoneId { get; set; }

public interface IMapper<in TIn, out TOut>
        TOut Map(TIn model);

public class CalendarEventViewModelMapper : IMapper<CalendarEvent, CalendarEventViewModel>
    public CalendarEventViewModel Map(CalendarEvent model)
        return new CalendarEventViewModel
            EndDateTimeUtc = model.EndDateTimeUtc,
            EventId = model.EventId,
            IsApproved = model.IsApproved,
            StartDateTimeUtc = model.StartDateTimeUtc,
            Summary = model.Summary,
            TimeZoneId = model.TimeZoneId,
            Title = model.Title

public class ValuesController 
       public ValuesController( IMapper<CalendarEvent, CalendarEventViewModel> calendarMapper)
           _calendarMapper = calendarMapper;

        // GET api/values/5
        public IActionResult Get(int id)

            var calendarEvent = GetMyCalendarEventFromDB(id);

            return this.Ok(_calendarMapper.Map(calendarEvent));

        private CalendarEvent GetMyCalendarEventFromDB(int id)
            return new CalendarEvent("yyyy-dd-MM")
                EndDateTimeUtc = DateTime.UtcNow.AddHours(3),
                EventId = id,
                IsApproved = true,
                StartDateTimeUtc = DateTime.UtcNow.AddHours(2),
                Summary = "My magical Event",
                TimeZoneId = "UTC",
                Title = "Magical Event"

Design patterns advice - separating ViewModels from domain models

Tag : chash , By : Christopher

I think the issue was by ths following , I also don't see much of a reason to keep the DAL separate from the MVC layer. In case you're interested, here is the layout that I've used for multiple project and I find it is very usable and flexible.
DataObjects Basic objects with only properties. Also includes enumerations which the DataObjects use.

This might help you You could consider using T4 templating, see this MSDN magazine article to get started. You could create a template that uses reflection to get the properties of your Model, and generate ViewModel from this.

AutoMapper: two-way, deep mapping, between domain models and viewmodels

it should still fix some issue In the end I found AutoMapper was unsuited to my scenario.
Instead I built a custom utility to provide bidirectional mapping & deep property mapping allowing configuration as follows. Given the scope of our project I believe this is justified.
BiMapper.CreateProfile<Client, ClientNotificationsViewModel>()
    .Map(x => x.NotificationSettings.ReceiveActivityEmail, x => x.ReceiveActivityEmail)
    .Map(x => x.NotificationSettings.ReceiveActivitySms, x => x.ReceiveActivitySms)
    .Map(x => x.ContactDetails.Email, x => x.Email)
    .Map(x => x.ContactDetails.MobileNumber, x => x.MobileNumber);

BiMapper.PerformMap(client, viewModel);
BiMapper.PerformMap(viewModel, client);

I think the issue was by ths following , I am struggling to figure out how to map my viewModels to domain models for to the Index, Edit, Details and Delete Action Result in the controller. , To map your domain model to the view model in the edit method
Parent p = db.Parents.Find(id);

ParentsEditVM model = new ParentsEditVM()
  ParentID = p.ParentID,
  FirstName =p.FirstName,
  LastName = p.LastName,
  Children = p.Childs.Select(c => new ChildVM()
    ChildID = c.ChildID,
    Name = c.Name,
    ... etc
return View(model);
