Installation

Run composer require ejarnutowski/laravel-api-key.

In your config/app.php file, add the Laravel API Key service provider to the end of the providers array.

'providers' => [
    ...
    Ejarnutowski\LaravelApiKey\Providers\ApiKeyServiceProvider::class,
],

Publish the migration files

$ php artisan vendor:publish

Run the migrations

$ php artisan migrate

3 new database tables will be created:

  • api_keys
  • api_key_access_events
  • api_key_admin_events

Managing Keys

Generate a new key using php artisan apikey:generate {name}. The name argument is the name of your API key. All new keys are active by default.

$ php artisan apikey:generate app1
  
// API key created
// Name: app1
// Key: 0ZdNlr7LrQocaqz74k6usQsOsqhqSIaUarSTf8mxnHuQVh9CvKAfpUy94VvBmFMq

Deactivate a key using php artisan apikey:deactivate {name}.

$ php artisan apikey:deactivate app1
  
// Deactivated key: app1

Activate a key using php artisan apikey:activate {name}.

$ php artisan apikey:activate app1
  
// Activated key: app1

Delete a key. You'll be asked to confirm. Keys are soft-deleted for record keeping.

$ php artisan apikey:delete app1
  
// Are you sure you want to delete API key 'app1'? (yes/no) [no]:
// > yes
  
// Deleted key: app1

List all keys. The -D or --deleted flag includes deleted keys

$ php artisan apikey:list -D
 
// +----------+----+-------------+---------------------+------------------------------------------------------------------+
// | Name     | ID | Status      | Status Date         | Key                                                              |

Usage

Implementing Authorization

A new auth.apikey route middleware has been registered for you to use in your routes or controllers. Below are examples on how to use middleware, but for detailed information, check out Middleware in the Laravel Docs.

Route example

Route::get('api/user/1', function () {
    //
})->middleware('auth.apikey');

Controller example

class UserController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * Instantiate a new controller instance.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function __construct()
    {
        $this->middleware('auth.apikey');
    }
}

Authorizing Requests

In order to pass the auth.apikey middleware, requests must include an X-Authorization header as part of the request, with its value being an active API key.

X-Authorization: KuKMQbgZPv0PRC6GqCMlDQ7fgdamsVY75FrQvHfoIbw4gBaG5UX0wfk6dugKxrtW

Unauthorized Requests

Requests that do not pass authorization will receive an HTTP 401 Status Code with the following response

{
    "errors": [
        {
            "message": "Unauthorized"
        }
    ]
}

Event History

All API requests that pass authorization are logged in the api_key_access_events table. A record is created for each request with the following information:

  • api_key_id
  • ip_address
  • url
  • created_at
  • updated_at

Any time an API key is generated, activated, deactivated, or deleted, a record is logged in the api_key_admin_events table. Each record contains the following information:

  • api_key_id
  • ip_address
  • event
  • created_at
  • updated_at
