How to insert multiple rows from a single query using eloquent/fluent?

0 votes

I have the following query:

  $query = UserSubject::where('user_id', Auth::id())->select('subject_id')->get();

and as expected I get the following result:

[{"user_id":8,"subject_id":9},{"user_id":8,"subject_id":2}]

Is there a way of copying the above result into another table so that my table looks like this?

ID|user_id|subject_id
1 |8      |9
2 |8      |2

The problem I have is that the $query can expect any number of rows and so im unsure how to iterate through an unknown number of rows.

Hello @kartik,

You can use the following approach.

$data = [
    ['user_id'=>'Coder 1', 'subject_id'=> 4096],
    ['user_id'=>'Coder 2', 'subject_id'=> 2048],
    //...
];

Model::insert($data); // Eloquent approach
DB::table('table')->insert($data); // Query Builder approach

In your case you already have the data within the $query variable.

Hope it helps!!
Thank you!!
