I'm currently using the below code to insert data in a table:


public function saveDetailsCompany()
    $post = Input::All();

    $data = new Company;
    $data->nombre = $post['name'];
    $data->direccion = $post['address'];
    $data->telefono = $post['phone'];
    $data->email = $post['email'];
    $data->giro = $post['type'];
    $data->fecha_registro = date("Y-m-d H:i:s");
    $data->fecha_modificacion = date("Y-m-d H:i:s");

    if ($data->save()) {
        return Response::json(array('success' => true), 200);

I want to return the last ID inserted but I don't know how to get it.

Kind regards!



After save, $data->id should be the last id inserted.


Can be used like this.

return Response::json(array('success' => true, 'last_insert_id' => $data->id), 200);

For updated laravel version try this

return response()->json(array('success' => true, 'last_insert_id' => $data->id), 200);

The problem is that setConnection() works on an instance of a class, but the create() method is a static method on the class itself. In your repository, $this->product is an instance of the Product class. Using setConnection() on this instance before doing queries will work fine, but you'll need to do a little more manual work if you want to use separate connections on the static methods (such as create()).

All the create() method does is instantiate a new instance with the given attributes and then call save(). So, instead of calling create() on the Product model, you'll just need to do this manually:

class ProductRepository {
    public function create(array $attributes, $connection = null) {
        $product = $this->product->newInstance($attributes);
        $product->setConnection($connection ?: $this->product->getConnectionName());
        return $product;

You could also override the static create() method on the Product model to accept a connection, as well.

class Product extends Model {
    public static function create(array $attributes, $connection = null) {
        $model = new static($attributes);
        $model->setConnection($connection ?: $this->connection);
        return $model;

class ProductRepository {
    public function create(array $attributes, $connection = null) {
        $connection = $connection ?: $this->product->getConnectionName()
        return $this->product->create($attributes, $connection);

Isn't SELECT LAST_INSERT_ID() reliable and safe enough?

From MySQL Doc: The ID that was generated is maintained in the server on a per-connection basis. This means that the value returned by the function to a given client is the first AUTO_INCREMENT value generated for most recent statement affecting an AUTO_INCREMENT column by that client. This value cannot be affected by other clients, even if they generate AUTO_INCREMENT values of their own.

Note from a forum: (...)All bets are off, though, if for some reason you are using persistent connections, such as via mysql_pconnect()(...)

As described at, you need the $fillable property set for all the properties you want to be mass-assignable. You should therefore uncomment the line starting with protected $fillable = ....

Use getGeneratedKeys() if your JDBC driver supports it. You don't want to muck around trying to get the key yourself after the insert. If your driver does not support getGeneratedKeys() then I would get the next value from the key before the insert.
