Component uses Redis to store token information


composer require "digit-soft/laravel-token-auth:~1.0"

Publish config

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="DigitSoft\LaravelTokenAuth\AuthServiceProvider" --tag=config

Configure guard

Change driver to token-cached in config/auth.php

    'guards' => [
        'api' => [
            'driver' => 'token-cached',
            'provider' => 'users',

Ships with multiple middleware

  • DigitSoft\LaravelTokenAuth\Middleware\DefaultAuthGuard - set default auth guard to given value
  • DigitSoft\LaravelTokenAuth\Middleware\DefaultSessionDriver - set default session driver to given value
  • DigitSoft\LaravelTokenAuth\Middleware\AddGeneratedTokenToResponse - adds token generated during request to response header Some middleware useful for PHP-PM driven applications.


There is possibility to save session data to token, if you will use package session handler DigitSoft\LaravelTokenAuth\Session\TokenSessionHandler, driver name is token-cached. You can also set it with DefaultSessionDriver middleware. Often rewritable data such as previous page, flashes and _token are not stored.


There is DigitSoft\LaravelTokenAuth\Events\AccessTokenCreated, which fired every time token is created by TokenCached facade. So you can write or check information in AccessToken with own event listener.


  • You can use your own AccessToken implementation by extending original class and set its name in config.
  • You can set your own header name for AddGeneratedTokenToResponse middleware in config.

You can find more options and description in config file.
