Executing code for tenants and landlords

The Tenant and Landlord models provide an execute method that allows you to execute code for a specific tenant or landlord.

Executing tenant code in landlord request

To execute tenant code in a landlord request, you can use the method execute available in the Tenant model.

Here is an example where we flush the cache for a tenant using our landlord API:

Route::delete('/api/{tenant}/flush-cache', function (Tenant $tenant) {
    $result = $tenant->execute(fn (Tenant $tenant) => cache()->flush());
   
    return json_encode(["success" => $result]);
});

Inside the closure passed to execute, the given $tenant is set as the current one.

Here’s another example, where a job is dispatched from a landlord API route:

Route::post('/api/{tenant}/reminder', function (Tenant $tenant) {
    return json_encode([ 
        'data' => $tenant->execute(fn () => dispatch(ExpirationReminder())),
    ]);
});

Executing landlord code in tenant request

To execute landlord code, from inside a tenant request, you can use the method execute on Spatie\Multitenancy\Landlord.

Here is an example where we will first clear the tenant cache, and next, the landlord cache:

use  Spatie\Multitenancy\Landlord;

// ...

Tenant::first()->execute(function (Tenant $tenant) {
    // it will clear the tenant cache
    Artisan::call('cache:clear'); 
   
    // it will clear the landlord cache
    Landlord::execute(fn () => Artisan::call('cache:clear')); 
});

Inside the closure passed to execute, the landlord is made active by forgetting the current tenant.

Testing with DatabaseTransactions for Tenant

When performing testing and using DatabaseTransactions trait, the default setup in Laravel requires changes to ensure that the transactions are performed on the Tenant connection. Accordingly, the default TestCase.php file may be updated as below:

namespace Tests;

use Illuminate\Foundation\Testing\DatabaseTransactions;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Testing\TestCase as BaseTestCase;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Event;
use Spatie\Multitenancy\Concerns\UsesMultitenancyConfig;
use Spatie\Multitenancy\Events\MadeTenantCurrentEvent;

abstract class TestCase extends BaseTestCase
{
    use CreatesApplication, DatabaseTransactions, UsesMultitenancyConfig;

    protected function connectionsToTransact()
    {
        return [
            $this->landlordDatabaseConnectionName(),
            $this->tenantDatabaseConnectionName(),
        ];
    }

    protected function setUp(): void
    {
        parent::setUp();

        Event::listen(MadeTenantCurrentEvent::class, function () {
            $this->beginDatabaseTransaction();
        });
    }
}

In case a user login is performed using the Auth facade in the setUp method on a test, the tenant switching will not happen automatically. Accordingly, the setUp method above may be updated as below to ensure that the required tenant has been set (using the first Tenant as an example below)


protected function setUp(): void
{
    parent::setUp();

    Event::listen(MadeTenantCurrentEvent::class, function () {
        $this->beginDatabaseTransaction();
    });
    
    Tenant::first()->makeCurrent();
}
