uniqid() generating same string on each create record.

Posted 11 months ago by jlsodai

I am quite new to Laravel and need your help. I want to create a unique string for the uniq field... But laravel is giving me the same value over and over again. Any help on why this is happening or a better way to generate a unique but not too long id (eg. 5a5971196db9e) will be much appreciated.

Schema::create('schools', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->increments('id');
            $table->string('uniq')->default(uniqid());
});
