Laravel 6 - Update Function In Controller Ran But The Model Is Not Passed To The Controller

- 1 answer

I want to update a record from the background_check_batches table. What was done is listing all the records and each has a status property (column) that can be changed. Clicking on the status value will prompt a popup modal to update the value. Since there are multiple records sharing one model, the form's action is changed using js. The issue here is when submitting the form, requested data is received but the BackgroundCheckBatch model id is not. I have previously done this kind of task which is identical but it just doesn't work for some reason. Below are my codes.


Route::put('/admin/dashboard/background-request/{backgroundrequest}', '[email protected]')->name('update');

status.blade.php ()

{!! Form::open(['action' => ['[email protected]', -1], 'method' => 'POST', 'id' => 'adminBackgroundCheckStatusModalForm']) !!}


            <div class="modal__content">
                <select class="table_custom_select" id="Status" name="status">
                        <option class="table_custom_select_pending" value="Pending">Pending</option>
                        <option class="table_custom_select_progress" value="In Progress">In Progress</option>
                        <option class="table_custom_select_complete" value="Completed">Completed</option>

            <div class="modal__footer">
                <button type="submit" class="button button_size_m button_theme_primary">Proceed</button>

{!! Form::close() !!}


public function update(Request $request, BackgroundCheckBatch $backgroundCheckBatch) {
    return $backgroundCheckBatch;

return $backgroundCheckBatch; outputted and empty array, [] I expect it to return the BackgroundCheckBatch of the provided id in the URL

If I return $request;, it will output like so:

    _token: "Ax789Dr4VXFVE1vpjtKhEWdBjdCZqARDaNQnk7K8",
    _method: "PUT",
    status: "Completed"

Do inform me if I'm not providing enough detail



You're using implicit binding, but it doesn't work because your route parameter doesn't match argument name of your controller's method,

Change your route's parameter to snake_case of $backgroundCheckBatch (type-hinted argument name of controller's method):

Route::put('/admin/dashboard/background-request/{background_check_batch}', '[email protected]')->name('update');
