How to add custom filter/Search using Laravel Datatables

In this Laravel tutorial, we will discuss today how to add custom filter/Search with Laravel Datatable. The package we are going to use for Datatable is yajra/laravel-datatables-oracle.

During this tutorial, we will use laravel 5.8, but you can start from Laravel 5.1 or above version. When you show the millions of records on a page from the database in a form of table you need to add pagination and some filters to find the specific record.

The yajra/laravel-datatables-oracle package gives the functionalities like sort, search, pagination on a table. So just follow the following steps to add the custom filter and search in laravel application:

Setup New Laravel Project

Via Laravel Installer

composer global require laravel/installer

laravel new projectName

Via composer

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel projectName

Setup MySQL database for your project

In second setup create a new database through your phpmyadmin dashboard and add this database to your .env file.


DB_DATABASE= your database name
DB_USERNAME= your database username
DB_PASSWORD= your database password

Now you need to migrate two default table users and password_resets through the command:-

php artisan migrate

this command will create both ( users and password_resets ) table in your database.

Install yajra/laravel-datatables-oracle Package

Now laravel datatable process has been starting here. First you need to install yajra/laravel-datatables-oracle Package in your project through the command:-

composer require yajra/laravel-datatables-oracle

Add Package To Providers and Aliases config->app.php File

'providers' => [
        // ...

'aliases' => [
        // ...
        'Datatables' => Yajra\Datatables\Facades\Datatables::class,

Create Dummy Data

To show laravel datatable we need to create some dummy data through the command:-

php artisan tinker

factory(App\User::class, 100)->create();

Through above command 100 dummy users data will be added to users table in your database.

laravel tinker

Create Controller

Create a new controller for laravel datatables called DataTableController

php artisan make:controller DataTableController

Create A Route

Create a new route in route/web.php

Route::get('createdatatable', 'DataTableController@createdatatable');
Route::get('index', 'DataTableController@index');

Now update controller like below

use Datatables;
use App\User;

class EmploymentAgreement extends Controller
    public function index()
        return Datatables::of(User::query())->make(true);

    public function createdatatable()
        return view('showdatatable');


Create View show datatable

<html lang="en">
    <title>Laravel DataTables View</title>

<link  href="" rel="stylesheet">
         <link href="" rel="stylesheet">
        <script src=""></script>
        <script src=""></script>
        <script src=""></script>

<div class="container">
<h2>Laravel DataTables Tutorial Example</h2>
<table class="table table-bordered" id="table">
         $(function() {
               processing: true,
               serverSide: true,
               ajax: '{{ url('index') }}',
               columns: [
                        { data: 'id', name: 'id' },
                        { data: 'name', name: 'name' },
                        { data: 'email', name: 'email' }
