  • Upsert() method in laravel

        ['id' => 1, 'email' => '[email protected]'],
        ['id' => 2, 'email' => '[email protected]'],
    ], ['email']);

    The first argument is the values to insert/update the records and the second argument is the column(s) that uniquely identify records. All databases except SQL Server require these columns to have a PRIMARY or UNIQUE index.

    It will insert the record if the value does not already exist in the database else it will update the records. The upsert method will automatically set the created_at and updated_at timestamps if timestamps are enabled on the model.
