Select default value if no old input is set

I am using form model binding and have the following select input :

{!! Form::select('user_id', $users, old('user_id') ?: Auth::id(), ['class' => 'form-control select2 users']) !!}

I would like to accomplish the following:

  • In the creation form: select the option where the user_id equals the authenticated user’s ID, but if there was old input in the session, select that option instead.
  • In the edit form: always select the option that is stored in the model.

old('user_id') ?: Auth::id() doesn’t seem to work when editing, because it always selects the option of the authenticated user and not the one that is stored in the model.
