System requirements

Set session.driver value

To use this package the only allowed values of session.driver are file, database, redis (at the moment).


You can install the package via composer:

$ composer require biscolab/laravel-authlog

Laravel 5.5 (or greater) uses package auto-discovery, so doesn't require you to manually add the Service Provider, but if you don't use auto-discovery AuthLogServiceProvider must be registered in config/app.php:

'providers' => [

You can use the facade for shorter code. Add AuthLog to your aliases:

'aliases' => [
    'AuthLog' => Biscolab\LaravelAuthLog\Facades\AuthLog::class,

Publish package

Publish configuration and migration files using the following artisan command:

$ php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Biscolab\LaravelAuthLog\AuthLogServiceProvider"

Add AuthLoggable trait to User model

Use Biscolab\LaravelAuthLog\Traits\AuthLoggable in App\User


namespace App;

// .....

use Biscolab\LaravelAuthLog\Traits\AuthLoggable;

class User extends Authenticatable
    use AuthLoggable;
    // other traits

Your users' table id MUST be either of type unsignedInteger or unsignedBigInteger. If you have a custom users' table edit datatbase/migratons/2019_09_19_000000_create_authlog_table.php after vendor:publish artisan command

Run migrations

php artisan migrate

AuthLog database table will be created.


Register `AuthLogMiddleware

Register AuthLogMiddleware in app/Http/Kernel.php. This middleware will handle user authentication session ID.

protected $routeMiddleware = [
    'auth.log' =>  \Biscolab\LaravelAuthLog\Middleware\AuthLogMiddleware::class

Add AuthLogMiddleware to routes

Route::group(['middleware' => ['auth.log']], function() {

    // Your routes

Handle logged users

Artisan Command

To handle auth sessions type the following artisan command

php artisan authlog:logged

The list of logged users will be shown

| Log ID | Session ID                               | User                  | Logged @            |
| 604    | teq4LmVM4u4sdhFTKnGsKeWs3IBOLAIOXB1c4ioy | Roberto Belotti (#22) | 2019-09-25 22:56:33 |

Session "teq4LmVM4u4sdhFTKnGsKeWs3IBOLAIOXB1c4ioy" deleted. "Roberto Belotti" user logged out
