Some PHP packages are not free to download and because of that hosted in private repositories. In this case some credentials are needed to access such packages. Please use the auth.json textarea to insert credentials, if a package is coming from a private repository. You can look here for more information.

  • Some hosting areas are not accessible by a terminal or SSH. Then it is not possible to use Composer.
  • To use Composer is sometimes complicated. Especially for beginners.
  • Composer needs much resources. Sometimes they are not available on a simple webspace.
  • If you are using private repositories you don't need to share your credentials. You can set up everything on our site and then you provide a simple download link to your team member.
  • Simplify your Composer build process. Use our own command line tool to download the vendor folder as binary. This makes your build process faster and you don't need to expose your credentials for private repositories.
Please rate this library. Is it a good library?

This inverse version of HasManyThrough allows BelongsToThrough relationships with unlimited intermediate models.

Supports Laravel 5.0+.


composer require staudenmeir/belongs-to-through:"^2.5"

Use this command if you are in PowerShell on Windows (e.g. in VS Code):

composer require staudenmeir/belongs-to-through:"^^^^2.5"


Laravel Package
11.x 2.16
10.x 2.13
9.x 2.12
8.x 2.11
7.x 2.10
6.x 2.6
5.x 2.5


Consider this HasManyThrough relationship:
Country → has many → User → has many → Post

Use the BelongsToThrough trait in your model to define the inverse relationship:
Post → belongs to → User → belongs to → Country

You can also define deeper relationships:
Comment → belongs to → Post → belongs to → User → belongs to → Country

Supply an array of intermediate models as the second argument, from the related (Country) to the parent model (Comment):

Custom Foreign Keys

You can specify custom foreign keys as the fifth argument:

Custom Local Keys

You can specify custom local keys for the relations:

VendorCustomerAddress → belongs to → VendorCustomer in VendorCustomerAddress.vendor_customer_id VendorCustomerAddress → belongs to → CustomerAddress in VendorCustomerAddress.address_id

You can access VendorCustomer from CustomerAddress by the following

Table Aliases

If your relationship path contains the same model multiple times, you can specify a table alias (Laravel 6+):

Use the HasTableAlias trait in the models you are aliasing:
