Installation and Setup

The package can be installed via composer:

composer require spatie/laravel-activitylog

The package will automatically register the service provider.

You can publish the migration with:

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

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 [

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

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

    /*
     * If no log name is passed to the activity() helper
     * we use this default log name.
     */
    'default_log_name' => 'default',

    /*
     * You can specify an auth driver here that gets user models.
     * If this is null we'll use the default Laravel auth driver.
     */
    'default_auth_driver' => null,

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

    /*
     * This model will be used to log activity.
     * It should be implements the Spatie\Activitylog\Contracts\Activity interface
     * and extend Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model.
     */
    'activity_model' => \Spatie\Activitylog\Models\Activity::class,

    /*
     * This is the name of the table that will be created by the migration and
     * used by the Activity model shipped with this package.
     */
    'table_name' => 'activity_log',
];
