Eloquent user driver – roles are not assignable #1989

Describe the bug
When using the eloquent user driver, roles cannot be assigned to users. If roles are assigned manually in the database by adding a record to the user_roles table, these rows are deleted on logout (or I think whenever the user is saved).

To Reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Use eloquent user driver
  2. Try to add roles to a user in the CP
  3. No roles are added


  1. Manually assign roles in database
  2. Log out
  3. Role assignments have been removed

Expected behavior
Roles should be assignable and persist through user logout.

Environment details (please complete the following information):

  • Statamic Version: 2.9.2
  • Fresh Install or Upgrade: Upgrade
  • Web Server: Valet
  • PHP Version: 7.1
  • Addons installed:

This is not a good long term solution, but I seem to have got it working with edits to the set() and updateRoles() methods in Data/Users/Eloquent/User.php.

The issue when storing roles is that they're not stored on the users table, so the roles field is removed when checking against table column names.

// Data/Users/Eloquent/User.php#92

public function set($key, $value)
    $columns = \Schema::getColumnListing($this->model()->getTable());

    // Store the roles on the model so they're picked up for saving later
    if (array_has(array_flip($columns), $key) || $key === 'roles') {
        $this->model()->$key = $value;

The issue when updating roles is that the roles relationship is not automatically loaded from the database (when loading from a file there's no need to query related data).

// Data/Users/Eloquent/User.php#41

private function updateRoles()
    $roles = collect($this->get('roles', []));

    // If roles aren't found on the model already, try re-building from the database
    if ($roles->isEmpty()) {

        // $this->roles() returns a collection of Role objects; we want just a collection of UUIDs
        $roles = $this->roles()->map(function (Statamic\Permissions\File\Role $role) {
            return $role->uuid();

    (new Roles($this))->sync($roles);
