This package makes it easy to send notifications using HismsWs with Laravel 8.x.

This package was inspired by :



Package Installation

Install the package using composer:

composer require ab-alselwi/hisms-ws-notification-channel

Add service provider to your array of providers in config/app.php

You don't need to do this step for laravel 8.0+


Publish the configuration file:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="NotificationChannels\HismsWs\HismsWsServiceProvider"

Set up hisms.ws account

You must have an account with HismsWs to be able to use this package.


There are two methods of authentication when using hisms.ws api.

You could send requests using your login credentials (mobile/password), or by using the apiKey which you can generate from your hisms.ws account.

You must add hisms.ws credentials to your .env file.

// Mobile number and password used for log in.

// name/number of the sender which must be approved by hisms.ws for GCC
Which method to use:

You can define the authentication method you would like to use by editing your config/hismsWs file.

// config/hismsws

     // Set yor login credentials to communicate with hisms.ws Api
    'mobile' => env('HISMS_WS_MOBILE'),
    'password' =>  env('HISMS_WS_PASSWORD'),
    // Name of Sender must be approved by hisms.ws
    'sender' => env('HISMS_WS_SENDER'),


Create new notification:

Make a new notification class using laravel artisan

php artisan make:notification UserRegistered

and configure the notification class to use HismsWsChannel.

The toHismsWs method should return a string of the text message to be sent or an instance of HismsWsMessage.


namespace App\Notifications;

use Illuminate\Notifications\Notification;
use NotificationChannels\HismsWs\HismsWsChannel;
use NotificationChannels\HismsWs\HismsWsSmsMessage;

class UserRegistered extends Notification
     * Get the notification's delivery channels.
     * @param  mixed  $notifiable
     * @return array
    public function via($notifiable)
        return [HismsWsChannel::class];
     * Get the text message representation of the notification
     * @param  mixed      $notifiable
     * @param \NotificationChannels\HismsWs\HismsWsSmsMessage $msg
     * @return \NotificationChannels\HismsWs\HismsWsSmsMessage|string
    public function toHismsWs($notifiable, HismsWsSmsMessage $msg)
        return "Dear $notifiable->name, welcome to our website";

Routing SMS Notifications:

When sending notifications via the HismsWs channel, the notification system will automatically look for a phone_number attribute on the notifiable entity. If you would like to customize the phone number the notification is delivered to, define a routeNotificationForHismsWs method on the entity:


    namespace App;

    use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable;
    use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;

    class User extends Authenticatable
        use Notifiable;

         * Route notifications for the HismsWs channel.
         * @return string
        public function routeNotificationForHismsWs()
            return $this->mobile;

routeNotificationForHismsWs should return a mobile number to which the SMS message will be sent.

Please note that the mobile number must start with the country code without leading zeros.

For example, 9665xxxxxxxx

Sending SMS:

use App\Notifications\UserRegistered;

$user = App\User::first();

$user->notify(new UserRegistered());

Scheduled SMS

HismsWs Api allows for sending scheduled message which will be sent on the defined date/time.

Please note that if you define time in the past, the message will be sent immediately by hismsws. This library will not check if the defined time is in the future.

You can define the time on which the message should be sent by hisms.ws by calling time method on the HismsWsMessage instance.

    public function toHismsWs($notifiable)
        return (new HismsWsSmsMessage)
            ->text("Message text")
            ->time(Carbon::parse("+1 week);

The time method accepts either a DateTime object or a timestamp.
