Log activity inside your Laravel app

Latest Version on Packagist Software License Build Status SensioLabsInsight Quality Score StyleCI Total Downloads

The spatie/laravel-activitylog package provides easy to use functions to log the activities of the users of your app. It can also automatically log model events. All activity will be stored in the activity_log table.

Here's a litte demo of how you can use it:

activity()->log('Look, I logged something');

You can retrieve all activity using the Spatie\Activitylog\Models\Activity model.

Activity::all();

Here's a more advanced example:

activity()
   ->performedOn($anEloquentModel)
   ->causedBy($user)
   ->withProperties(['customProperty' => 'customValue'])
   ->log('Look, I logged something');

$lastLoggedActivity = Activity::all()->last();

$lastLoggedActivity->subject; //returns an instance of an eloquent model
$lastLoggedActivity->causer; //returns an instance of your user model
$lastLoggedActivity->getExtraProperty('customProperty'); //returns 'customValue'
$lastLoggedActivity->description; //returns 'Look, I logged something'

Here's an example on event logging.

$newsItem->name = 'updated name';
$newsItem->save();

//updating the newsItem will cause an activity being logged
$activity = Activity::all()->last();

$activity->description; //returns 'updated'
$activity->subject; //returns the instance of NewsItem that was created

Calling $activity->changes will return this array:

[
   'attributes' => [
        'name' => 'updated name',
        'text' => 'Lorum',
    ],
    'old' => [
        'name' => 'original name',
        'text' => 'Lorum',
    ],
];

Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require spatie/laravel-activitylog

Next, you must install the service provider:

// config/app.php
'providers' => [
    ...
    Spatie\Activitylog\ActivitylogServiceProvider::class,
];

You can publish the migration with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Spatie\Activitylog\ActivitylogServiceProvider" --tag="migrations"

Note: The default migration assumes you are using integers for your model IDs. If you are using UUIDs, or some other format, adjust the format of the subject_id and causer_id fields in the published migration before continuing.

After the migration has been published you can create the activity_log table by running the migrations:

php artisan migrate

You can optionally publish the config file with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Spatie\Activitylog\ActivitylogServiceProvider" --tag="config"

This is the contents of the published config file:

return [

    /**
     * When set to false, no activities will be saved to database.
     */
    'enabled' => env('ACTIVITY_LOGGER_ENABLED', true),

    /**
     * When running the clean-command all recording activites older than
     * the number of days specified here will be deleted.
     */
    'delete_records_older_than_days' => 365,


    /**
     * When not specifying a log name when logging activity
     * we'll using this log name.
     */
    'default_log_name' => 'default',


    /**
     * When set to true, the subject returns soft deleted models.
     */
     'subject_returns_soft_deleted_models' => false,


    /**
     * This model will be used to log activity. The only requirement is that
     * it should be or extend the Spatie\Activitylog\Models\Activity model.
     */
    'activity_model' => \Spatie\Activitylog\Models\Activity::class,     
];
