Replied to Users, Roles And Teams Many To Many Relationships Question

Which way would you recommend?

I feel like creating a pivot table for the team user's role would be good as then I would have a Model I can work with, I take it the table name would be team_user_role?

Thanks for your help btw!

Replied to Users, Roles And Teams Many To Many Relationships Question

@bugsysha Wouldn't having a role string in the team_user pivot table cause problems in the future?

For example what if I need to rename the role from "Client" to "Customer"?

If I skip the Role model, how would I for example get all of users's emails with a role of "Administrator" if there is no Eloquent Model I can use?

I would appreciate if you could clarify some of these points as I want to make sure I don't encounter any maintainability problems in the future.

Started a new Conversation Users, Roles And Teams Many To Many Relationships Question

I have the following database structure for my application:

users

id | name | email | email_verified_at | password | remember_token

teams

id | owner_id | name | slug | description

team_user

id | team_id | user_id 

roles

id | name

I have been able to create relationships between the Team and User models from the following:

Team.php

public function users() {
    return $this->belongsToMany(User::class);
}

User.php

public function organisations() {
    return $this->belongsToMany(Team::class);
}

A user can be part of multiple teams and should be able to have different roles within each of these teams, is it possible to achieve this by adding a role_id column to my team_user table instead of creating another Pivot table like the following:

team_user_role

id | team_id | user_id | role_id

If so, which Eloquent relationship should be created between the User within the Team and the Role? Could someone explain clearly the correct relationships as I am receiving SQL errors when trying to access the user's role from my Team model:

@foreach ($team->users as $user)
    {{ $user->role }}
@endforeach
