Timestamps

Excluding Timestamps from JSON

If you want to exclude timestamps from JSON output of role/permission pivots, you can extend the Role and Permission models into your own App namespace and mark the pivot as hidden:

    protected $hidden = ['pivot'];

Adding Timestamps to Pivots

If you want to add timestamps to your pivot tables, you can do it with a few steps: - update the tables by calling $table->timestamps(); in a migration - extend the Permission and Role models and add ->withTimestamps(); to the BelongsToMany relationshps for roles() and permissions() - update your User models (wherever you use the HasRoles or HasPermissions traits) by adding ->withTimestamps(); to the BelongsToMany relationshps for roles() and permissions()
