php – Laravel Basic HTTP Auth Check Returning False

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I’m using the basic HTTP authentication provided in Laravel to log in to my website. However, when I call Auth::Check() I always get false as the response even though I am logged in.

Does Auth::Check() not work with the basic authentication model and if not, is there any way to check the basic authentication to see if a user is logged in?

This is my user class:

namespace App;

use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;

class User extends Authenticatable
{
    /**
     * The attributes that are mass assignable.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $fillable = [
        'email', 'password',
    ];

    /**
     * The attributes excluded from the model's JSON form.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $hidden = [
        'password', 'remember_token',
    ];

    public function getRememberToken()
    {
        return $this->remember_token;
    }

    public function setRememberToken($value)
    {
        $this->remember_token = $value;
    }

    public function getRememberTokenName()
    {
        return 'remember_token';
    }
}

This is the segment of code where I set the authentication filter to use

$this->middleware('auth.basic', ['only' => ['create', 'store', 'edit', 'update', 'destroy']]);

And this is my Auth::Check() call (Always prints 0):

public function show($id)
{
    echo \Auth::check() ? '1' : '0';
    die();
    #.......
}

How to&Answers:

It changed in 5.2 version.

If you will use session, csrf, cookie ext. you should to use “web” middleware like this in your routes:

Route::group(['middleware' => ['web']], function () {
//
});

And you can see in your project the new kernel.php file is like this:

/**
 * The application's route middleware groups.
 *
 * @var array
 */
protected $middlewareGroups = [
    'web' => [
        \App\Http\Middleware\EncryptCookies::class,
        \Illuminate\Cookie\Middleware\AddQueuedCookiesToResponse::class,
        \Illuminate\Session\Middleware\StartSession::class,
        \Illuminate\View\Middleware\ShareErrorsFromSession::class,
        \App\Http\Middleware\VerifyCsrfToken::class,
],

'api' => [
    'throttle:60,1',
],
];
