Provides an Eloquent trait to automatically maintain created_by and updated_by (and deleted_by when using SoftDeletes) on your models.


  • This package requires PHP 5.6+
  • It works with Laravel 5.x (and may work with earlier versions too).


Require this package with composer

composer require mazyvan/userstamps

Migrate your Model's table to include a created_by and updated_by (and deleted_by if using SoftDeletes).

$table -> unsignedInteger('created_by') -> nullable() -> default(null) -> after('created_at');
$table -> unsignedInteger('updated_by') -> nullable() -> default(null) -> after('updated_at');

Load the trait in your Model.

use Mazyvan\Userstamps\Userstamps;

class Example extends Model {

    use Userstamps;

The following methods become available on your models to help retrieve the users creating, updating and deleting (if using SoftDeletes).

$model -> creator; // the user who created the model
$model -> editor; // the user who last updated the model
$model -> destroyer; // the user who deleted the model

If you want to manually set the created_by or updated_by properties on your model you can stop Userstamps being automatically maintained using the stopUserstamping method.

If you want to define the created_by, updated_by, or deleted_by column names, add the following class constants to your model(s).

const CREATED_BY = 'created_by';
const UPDATED_BY = 'updated_by';
const DELETED_BY = 'deleted_by';
