I have following situation. i have a table "drivers_events" in this there are stored the drivers which are booked for an event. Now I would like to do following

    drivers AS Driver 
        drivers_events AS Listing 
        ON = Listing.driver_id 
    Listing.event_id = 83 

If I run it as a SQL query in phpmyadmin, it works perfectly and I get the correct id and name from the table "drivers".

When I do this in my controller like this

$drivers = $this->Jobs->query("
        drivers AS Driver 
        INNER JOIN
            drivers_events AS Event 
            ON = Event.driver_id 
        Event.event_id = $activeevent 

then i get the complete array of jobs which created in the past.

What did i do wrong ?

It would be great if someone could help me.

Thanks in advance

I tried a lot more. I have come to the conclusion that I can read out the drivers who are assigned to an event.

in the controller it looks like this

 $drivers = $this->Jobs->drivers_events->find('list',
      'conditions' =>
           'drivers_events.event_id' => $this->request->session()->read('')
      'keyField' => 'driver_id',
      'valueField' => 'driver_id'

In the model

 $this->belongsTo('drivers_events', [
      'foreignKey' => 'event_id',

So now I get the right drivers for a driving job within an event. But how do I get the name of the driver from the "Drivers" table instead the ID ?

Thx for help

Class Cake\ORM\Query, innerJoinWith() public. Creates an INNER JOIN with the passed association table while preserving the foreign key matching and the custom conditions that were  Cakephp version: 3.5. I have a claims table. A project has many claims. A claim has one project, a number (1, 2, 3 and running), and each number may be revised multiple times. The combination of project_id, number and rev_number makes a uniqe claim. Table looks something like this (on the right hand I have marked the rows I want in a query):

Event key word is reserved for SQL. Please do not use it for table alias. Or use such this method.

drivers_events AS `Event`

Hope to be useful.

$result = $this->Jobs->find()

How to use Inner Join..? - Need Help, There is quite a lot of information available in the book.​3.0/en/orm/associations.html and  CakePHP 3.5.0 Released. The CakePHP core team is happy to announce the immediate availability of CakePHP 3.5.0. This is the first stable release of 3.5.0. 3.5.0 provides a number improvements both large and small to CakePHP. It also deprecates several features that will be removed in 4.0.0.

Retrieving Data & Results Sets - 3.8, Prior to 3.5.0 you would use contain(['Comments' => function () { }]) $query You can create just the INNER JOIN that matching() uses with innerJoinWith() :.

wrong INNER JOIN on an self-referencing belongsToMany , I started with cakephp 3 some days ago and haven't dug so deep in the core to figure out where i should start searching. Whether it is in the "Cake  The Query Object¶. The easiest way to create a Query object is to use find() from a Table object. This method will return an incomplete query ready to be modified. You can also use a table’s connection object to access the lower level Query builder that does not include ORM features, if necessary.

  • Maybe a tad offtopic, but why are you using a raw query instead of the query builder? Also note that what you are showing there is a possible SQL injection vulnerability, never ever insert bindable values into queries directly, especially not if it's user data!
  • Thanks for the information. I'd love to use the Query Builder, but I'm honest and do not look that way. Since I'm quite fit in SQL, I wanted to solve it just this way. But maybe you can give me a tip as I can implement the whole CakeLike so well in QueryBuilder. Especially since it does not come out at cake what I wanted to achieve.
  • Hi omid, thanks for your answer but this doesn't solves my problem. I will get always the complete drivers table when I do it in the controller. when i do it as sql query in phpmyadmin, it works great.
