To sync an object with many items in Laravel, you can use the sync method provided by Eloquent relationships. The sync method allows you to synchronize the items of a relationship to match the given array of IDs.


Here is an example of how you can use the sync method to sync an object with many items:

  1. Define the relationship in your Eloquent model:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
class Post extends Model
{
    public function tags()
    {
        return $this->belongsToMany(Tag::class);
    }
}


  1. Use the sync method to sync the items with the object:
1
2
3
4
5
$post = Post::find(1);

$tagIds = [1, 2, 3];

$post->tags()->sync($tagIds);


In this example, we first retrieve the post object with ID 1. Then, we define an array of tag IDs that we want to sync with the post. Finally, we call the sync method on the tags relationship of the post object and pass in the array of tag IDs. Laravel will automatically update the relationship to match the given tag IDs.


You can also use the sync method with additional data by passing an associative array to the method:

1
2
3
4
5
$post->tags()->sync([
    1 => ['created_at' => '2022-01-01'],
    2 => ['created_at' => '2022-01-02'],
    3 => ['created_at' => '2022-01-03'],
]);


In this example, we are passing an associative array where the key is the tag ID and the value is an array of additional data to be updated in the pivot table for that tag.
