General Configuration

The default auditing behavior can be altered by updating the settings in the configuration file, which can be found in config/audit.php.

Audit implementation

Since version 4.1.0, the audit implementation can be configured.

By default, the package will use OwenIt\Auditing\Models\Audit.

return [
    // ...

    'implementation' => OwenIt\Auditing\Models\Audit::class,

    // ...
];

Read more about it in the Audit Implementation section.

User

Version 7.0.0 brings significant changes to the User configuration. The primary_key, foreign_key and model are no longer necessary, giving way to morph_prefix and guards.

Morph prefix

The User relation has been modified from BelongsTo to MorphTo, allowing for multiple user types. By default, the column names used are user_id and user_type. For different column names, change the prefix value and update the migration accordingly.

return [
    // ...

    'user' = [
        'morph_prefix' => 'user',
    ],

    // ...
];

{note} The Audit resolveData() method will still use user_id and other user_ prefixed keys for any User data, regardless of the morph prefix set.

Auth Guards

Specify which authentication guards the UserResolver should check in order to resolve a User.

return [
    // ...

    'user' = [
        'guards' => [
            'web',
            'api',
        ],
    ],

    // ...
];

Audit driver

Being the only driver provided, the Database driver is set as default.

return [
    // ...

    'driver' => 'database',

    // ...
];

The Database driver allows modifying:

return [
    // ...

    'drivers' => [
        'database' => [
            'table'      => 'audits',
            'connection' => null,
        ],
    ],

    // ...
];

Console/CLI and Jobs

Eloquent events fired from a Job or from the console (i.e. migrations, tests, commands, Tinker, ...), WILL NOT be audited by default. To enable console auditing, set the console value to true.

return [
    // ...

    'console' => true,

    // ...
];

{note} Resolving a User in the console may not work.
