You use the IgnoreAttribute attribute to ensure that a method on a domain service is not exposed as a domain operation.

The following example shows a method in a domain service that is called by a domain operation, but is not exposed as a domain operation.

public void InsertCustomer(Customer customer)
    if (customer.SalesPerson == String.Empty)
        customer.SalesPerson = RetrieveSalesPersonForCompany(customer.CompanyName);

    if ((customer.EntityState != EntityState.Detached))
        this.ObjectContext.ObjectStateManager.ChangeObjectState(customer, EntityState.Added);

public string RetrieveSalesPersonForCompany(string companyname)
    string salesPersonToAssign = "unassigned";

    List<Customer> customers = GetCustomers().Where(c => c.CompanyName == companyname).ToList();
    if (customers.Count > 0)
        salesPersonToAssign = customers.First().SalesPerson;

    return salesPersonToAssign;
