// This method gets called by the runtime. Use this method to add services to the container.
public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
    // Register MediatR handlers and request validators
    var executingAssembly = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();

    // Add the MediatR validation pipeline
    services.TryAddTransient(typeof(IPipelineBehavior<,>), typeof(RequestValidationBehavior<,>));
