Laravel scout whereNotNull is not working

Posted on:January 30, 2023 at 10:00 AM


If you want to use whereNull() or whereNotNull() in the Laravel Scout, you may get this error Method Laravel\Scout\Builder::whereNotNull does not exist. It’s because scout officially does not support whereNull() or whereNotNull().

Then how to achieve this?

There is a hack you can follow to achieve it. You can use query() and pass a closure in it.

For example:

User::search('Taylor')->query(function ($query) {
    $query->where('email_verified_at', '!=', 'NULL');

This should work.
