Laravel Auditable is a simple Laravel auditing package for your Eloquent Model. This package automatically inserts/updates an audit log on your table on who created and last updated the record.

Laravel Version Compatibility

Laravel Package
5.x-10.x 4.x
11.x 11.x

Install via Composer

composer require yajra/laravel-auditable:^11

Publish config file

If you want to modify the withDefault option on auditable columns, you may publish the config file.

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=auditable


Update your model's migration and add created_by and updated_by field using the auditable() blueprint macro.

Schema::create('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
    $table->string('name', 100);

Then use AuditableTrait on your model.

namespace App;

use Yajra\Auditable\AuditableTrait;

class User extends Model
    use AuditableTrait;

Soft Deletes

If you wish to use Laravel's soft deletes, use the auditableWithDeletes() method on your migration instead:

Schema::create('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
    $table->string('name', 100);

Afterwards, you need to use AuditableWithDeletesTrait on your model.

namespace App;

use Yajra\Auditable\AuditableWithDeletesTrait;

class User extends Model
    use AuditableWithDeletesTrait, SoftDeletes;

Dropping columns

You can drop auditable columns using dropAuditable() method, or dropAuditableWithDeletes() if using soft deletes.

Schema::create('users', function (Blueprint $table) {

And you're done! The package will now automatically add a basic audit log for your model to track who inserted and last updated your records.
