In Laravel, you can generate a unique id using the Str class provided by Laravel. Here's how you can generate a unique id in Laravel:

1
2
3
use IlluminateSupportStr;

$uniqueId = Str::uuid();


This will generate a unique id in UUID format (Universally Unique Identifier). You can store this unique id in your database or use it wherever you need a unique identifier.


Alternatively, you can also generate a unique id using the uniqid() function in PHP:

1
$uniqueId = uniqid();


This will generate a unique id based on the current timestamp. However, using the uniqid() function does not guarantee a truly unique identifier in all cases, so it's generally recommended to use the Str class method for generating unique ids in Laravel.
