3.1 General installation from remote repository

Run the composer command:

composer require itstructure/laravel-rbac "~3.0.12"

3.2 Next internal installation steps


  • Make sure that a table for the users is already existing in your project.

  • Make sure that a model for the users table is already existing in your project.


If you don't have any layout yet, it is useful to install for example AdminLTE or you can make your special any layout template. Cause in this package there is no a layout specially. But in config it is necessary to set it (see the next point 2 about a configure).

Let's go:

  1. Publish files.

    Note: rbac.php config file and seeders LaRbacDatabaseSeeder, PermissionSeeder, RoleSeeder must be published surely!

    • To publish config run command:

      php artisan rbac:publish --only=config

      It stores config file to config folder.

    • To publish seeders run command:

      php artisan rbac:publish --only=seeders

      It stores seeder files to database/seeders folder.

    • To publish migrations run command:

      php artisan rbac:publish --only=migrations

      It stores migration files to database/migrations folder.

    • To publish views run command:

      php artisan rbac:publish --only=views

      It stores view files to resources/views/vendor/rbac folder.

    • To publish translations run command:

      php artisan rbac:publish --only=lang

      It stores translation files to resources/lang/vendor/rbac folder.

    • To publish all parts run command without only argument:

      php artisan rbac:publish

    Else you can use --force argument to rewrite already published files.

  2. Configure published config/rbac.php file:

    • set layout. Example: 'layout' => 'adminlte::page'

    • change userModelClass if it is needed to change

    • set adminUserId which you wanted to be with the role of administrator. At least at the beginning stage.

      It is necessary for the next time system to let you go into the Rbac control panel, after you assigned an administrator role for you (Later see point 4).

    • Most likely you have to change memberNameAttributeKey.

      It is to display the user name in control panel by getMemberNameAttribute() method of Administrable trait. It can be string or a callback:

      'memberNameAttributeKey' => function ($row) {
          return $row->first_name . ' ' . $row->last_name;
  3. Run command to run migrations and seeders:

    php artisan rbac:database

    Or optional:

    To run just migrations php artisan rbac:database --only=migrate

    To run just seeds php artisan rbac:database --only=seed

    • Alternative variant for seeders.

      You can set published rbac LaRbacDatabaseSeeder seeder class in to a special DatabaseSeeder:

      use Illuminate\Database\Seeder;
      class DatabaseSeeder extends Seeder
          public function run()

      and run command: php artisan db:seed.

  4. Run command to set Admin role for user with identifier adminUserId, defined in 2 point:

    php artisan rbac:admin

4 Usage


  • Make sure you use a Bootstrap 4 for styling and JQuery in your application.

  • Make sure that a laravel initial factory authorization is already working in your application.

4.1 Model part

According with the Itstructure\LaRbac\Interfaces\RbacUserInterface use functions from Itstructure\LaRbac\Traits\Administrable trait as in example:

namespace App;

use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;
use Itstructure\LaRbac\Interfaces\RbacUserInterface;
use Itstructure\LaRbac\Traits\Administrable;
class User extends Authenticatable implements RbacUserInterface
    use Notifiable, Administrable;

    protected $fillable = [
        'name', 'email', 'password', 'roles'

    protected $hidden = [
        'password', 'remember_token',

4.2 Routes part

There are already integrated base RBAC routes to manage users, roles and permissions. See in routes.php package file.

They are guarded by the next:

  • middleware auth (editable by config).
  • permission can:administrate (editable by config).

This routes allow you to go to the next routes:

  • Users section

    For get request method

    For post request method

  • Permissions section

    For get request method
