Injecting a Relationship

Posted 8 months ago by ts

Hi all,

So in a controller I'm accessing the establishment property of the authenticated user, which returns an Eloquent belongsTo relationship.

I'm accessing it in several places, currently like so:


Which I feel is bad. I'd really like to inject the establishment into the controller __construct method so I can access it as $this->establishment, but when I do, it returns a new instance of the establishment, not the user's establishment.

I've tried declaring a singleton in a service container and setting it to Auth::user()->establishment, but Auth::check() is returning false because (I'm guessing) the user hasn't been resolved?

I feel like I'm close to a solution. If there are any Laracasts or articles that might shed some light, that'd be ace.

Cheers, Tom
