LiamMcArthur left a reply on Multiple GroupBy Across Multiple Relationships

But group can be used to group entity values before parsing them? So in my case, I want to group entity values with the same make/model/year - then exclude them from the resulting collection. The difficulty I'm finding is getting into each relationship and performing each groupBy.

LiamMcArthur started a new conversation Multiple GroupBy Across Multiple Relationships

I'm working on a website that sells new vehicles that are imported via an external feed. We've realised that we'd like to remove duplicate vehicles that have the exact same features (such as model, range, year, weight). In order to achieve this, I figured we'd make use of GroupBy when querying our data, but unfortunately I haven't been able to get it working correctly.

Here's what I have so far. I'm trying to get unique titles of the model and range:

$query->whereHas('model', function($q) {
    $q->whereHas('range', function($q2) {
        $q2->groupBy('title');
    });
    $q->groupBy('title');
});

Is there a correct practise of sub-querying out such data using groupBy?

@DAVIDPETROV - That's perfect! With a bit of tinkering, we managed to get it fully working with this:

public function scopePriceBetween($query, $min, $max)
    {
        $query->whereHas('price', function ($q) use ($min, $max) {
            if ((isset($min) && !empty($min)) || ((isset($max) && !empty($max)))) {
                $q->where(function ($q) use ($min, $max) {
                    $q->where('discounted_price', '>', 0)
                        ->whereBetween('category_discounted_price', [$min, $max])
                        ->orWhereHas('discount')->whereBetween('category_discounted_price', [$min, $max]);
                })->orWhere(function ($q) use ($min, $max) {
                    $q->doesntHave('discount')->whereBetween('price', [$min, $max]);
                });
            }
        });
    }

Many thanks for your help with this.

LiamMcArthur started a new conversation Query Scope Based On Multiple Conditions

I have a price filter query scope in our product entity that checks if a products price is between the two values inputted. Since we've added discounts to our website, we've been unable to get the query scope working correctly so that it picks either the discounted price or the normal price. Here's what I've written so far:

public function scopePriceBetween($query, $min, $max)
    {
        $query->whereHas('price', function ($q) use ($min, $max) {

            if (isset($min) && !empty($min)) {

                ($q->whereNotNull('discount_id')
                    ->where('category_discounted_price', '>', $min)) or
                    $q->where('price', '>=', $min);

            }

            if (isset($max) && !empty($max)) {

                ($q->whereNotNull('discount_id')
                    ->where('category_discounted_price', '<', $max)) or
                    $q->where('price', '<=', $max);
            }

        });
    }

This scope seems to work on our listing pages that contain discounted items, but no longer works for product listings that contain products without discounts. Is it possible to write such complex conditions in query scopes? Essentially, I'm trying to detect if a products price has a discount ID, if it does - query the category_discounted_price, else - query the normal price.

@tonytran did you ever find a solution for this? I've tried adding 'opentype' and 'font/opentype' into my allowed-types - but it's still not working.
