How to Use Query Scope in Laravel Eloquent

Mar 21, 2020 · Article · 1 min, 295 words

We know that Laravel eloquent queries are the best ones. Today I’m going to share how to use query scope in Laravel eloquent. Let’s get started:

Table of Contents

  1. Create Scope
  2. Create Dynamic Scope
  3. Scope with Relation

Create Scope

Assume, we have a Model call Post. We’ll get all published posts from our database. Let’s do this using scope.

Open Post model and paste this code:

class Post extends Model

    public function scopePublished($query)
        return $query->where('published', 1);


Laravel know scope as alias. We can get published posts using:

$publishedPosts = Post::published()->get();

Create Dynamic Scope

We can get data by passing parameter to the scope. This is called dynamic scope.

class Post extends Model

    public function scopePublished($query, $value)
        return $query->where('published', $value);


Now we can use it dynamically:

// published posts
$publishedPosts = Post::published(true)->get();

// unpublished posts
$unpublishedPosts = Post::published(false)->get();

Scope with Relation

We can also use the scope with eloquent relation.

$author= Author::find(1);
$publishedPostsOfAuthor = $author->posts()->published(true)->get();

That’s all. Thank you.
