Dusk Failing on Teardown - `foreign key constraint fails`

1 minute read

April 30, 2018

When running a dusk test, I was getting the following error:

PDOException: SQLSTATE[23000]: Integrity constraint violation: 1217 Cannot delete or update a parent row: a foreign key constraint fails

And for the longest time I couldn't figure it out. I reinstalled dusk, tried to run the default test, and more.

I ended up digging into the DatabaseMigrations trait and realized that on teardown, the trait tries to rollback migrations instead of dropping them.

To fix the issue I added DB statements to turn off the foreign key checks after looking at this StackOverflow post.

 * Reverse the migrations.
 * @return void
public function down()
    DB::statement('SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS = 0');
    DB::statement('SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS = 1');

Laravel dusk testing

Looking for more?
