How to disable model timestamps in Laravel?

By Hardik Savani April 16, 2024 Category : Laravel

Sometimes we require to disable created_at and updated_at timestamps on Model on Laravel, so we can do it simply by using $timestamps variable of model. It is very small things but important to understand and how to use it. you can also use in laravel 6, laravel 7, laravel 8, laravel 9, laravel 10 and laravel 11 application.

When you create new item or user using model at that time created_at and updated_at column set default time by default but you can prevent to set false value of $timestamps variable.

I am creating new records using create method of model like as bellow example:


Ok, above code will simply add new records on items table with current timestamps value in created_at and updated_at. But you can prevent by add $timestamps variable value false. So your model will be like this way:



namespace App;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Item extends Model


public $fillable = ['title'];

public $timestamps = false;


Now, you can check, created_at and updated_at will be null.

Maybe it can help you....
