Updating your Eloquent Models

Your models should use the HasSettingsField or HasSettingsTable trait.

Option 1 - HasSettingsField trait

Run the php artisan model-settings:model-settings-field in order to create a migration file for a table.
This command will create a json field (default name settings, from config) for the mentioned table.

You can choose another than default, in this case you have to specify it in you model.

public $settingsFieldName = 'user_settings';

Complete example:

use Glorand\Model\Settings\Traits\HasSettingsField;

class User extends Model
    use HasSettingsField;
    //define only if you select a different name from the default
    public $settingsFieldName = 'user_settings';  


Option 2 - HasSettingsTable trait

Run before the command php artisan model-settings:model-settings-table.
The command will copy for you the migration class to create the table where the setting values will be stored.
The default name of the table is model_settings; change the config or env value MODEL_SETTINGS_TABLE_NAME if you want to rewrite the default name (before you run the command!)

use Glorand\Model\Settings\Traits\HasSettingsTable;

class User extends Model
    use HasSettingsTable;

Option 3 - HasSettingsRedis trait

use Glorand\Model\Settings\Traits\HasSettingsRedis;

class User extends Model
    use HasSettingsRedis;

Default settings

use Glorand\Model\Settings\Traits\HasSettingsTable;

class User extends Model
    public $defaultSettings = [
        'key_1' => 'val_1',


$user = App\User::first();

Get all model's settings


Get a specific setting

$user->settings()->get('some.setting', 'default value');
	'default value'

Add / Update setting

$user->settings()->set('some.setting', 'new value');
$user->settings()->update('some.setting', 'new value');
	'some.setting_1' => 'new value 1',
	'some.setting_2' => 'new value 2',

Check if the model has a specific setting


Remove a setting from a model


Persistence for settings field

In case of field settings the auto-save is configurable.

The default value is true

  • Use an attribute on model
protected $persistSettings = true; //boolean
  • Environment (.env) variable
  • Config value - model settings config file
'settings_persistent' => env('MODEL_SETTINGS_PERSISTENT', true),

If the persistence is false you have to save the model after the operation.
