Replied to UpdateOrCreate Tries To Update Non Existing Column

@automica thanks for suggestions.

I just tried with a fresh migration, dropped everything and migrated all the tables. Still no luck, same error. I don't understand where it is picking the housetype_id up from, rather than plot_id.

I have reverted back to the original column name of housetype_id and it is working again.

public function up()
    {
        Schema::create('shortlists', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->id();
            $table->foreignId('user_id')->constrained('users')->onDelete('cascade');
            $table->foreignId('housetype_id')->constrained('plots')->onDelete('cascade');
            $table->boolean('shortlisted');
            $table->timestamps();

            $table->unique(['user_id', 'housetype_id']);
        });
    }

Started a new Conversation UpdateOrCreate Tries To Update Non Existing Column

Hi, I recent been through the 'Laravel from Scratch' series and starting building a website as practice, it is basically a housebuilder type website. I added a feature where logged in users can shortlist properties by favouriting them and I got this working. But, then I found I incorrectly named a database column, so renamed all references to that column and now it has broken. Nothing is being added to the database.

The 'updateOrCreate' method seems to be still referencing the old name of the column and not the new name. I renamed the references from housetype_id to plot_id then rolled back and migrated. This is pretty much following the 'Tweety' app from the series for liking and disliking tweets.

I feel like I'm missing something, perhaps plainly obvious.

Error

SQLSTATE[42S22]: Column not found: 1054 Unknown column 'shortlists.housetype_id' in 'where clause' (SQL: select * from `shortlists` where `shortlists`.`housetype_id` = 16 and `shortlists`.`housetype_id` is not null and (`user_id` = 1) limit 1)

Migrations

public function up()
    {
        Schema::create('shortlists', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->id();
            $table->foreignId('user_id')->constrained()->onDelete('cascade');
            $table->foreignId('plot_id')->constrained()->onDelete('cascade');
            $table->boolean('shortlisted');
            $table->timestamps();

            $table->unique(['user_id', 'plot_id']);
        });
    }
public function up()
    {
        Schema::create('housetypes', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->id();
            $table->string('development');
            $table->string('housetype');
            $table->string('slug');
            $table->unsignedInteger('bedrooms');
            $table->string('abbr', 3);
            $table->string('description');
            $table->text('fulldescription');
            $table->string('type');
            $table->boolean('affordable_status')->default(0);
            $table->string('colour', 6);
            $table->timestamps();
        });
    }
public function up()
    {
        Schema::create('plots', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->id();
            $table->string('development');
            $table->integer('plot');
            $table->string('housetype');
            $table->float('price', 8, 2);
            $table->timestamps();
        });
    }
