Installation & Basic Usage

Please see the Base Installation Guide, then follow the provider specific instructions below.

Add configuration to config/services.php

'vatsim' => [
  'client_id' => env('VATSIM_CLIENT_ID'),
  'client_secret' => env('VATSIM_CLIENT_SECRET'),
  'redirect' => env('VATSIM_REDIRECT_URI'),
  'test' => env('VATSIM_TEST'),

See Configure VATSIM Connect Authentication

Add provider event listener

Laravel 11+

In Laravel 11, the default EventServiceProvider provider was removed. Instead, add the listener using the listen method on the Event facade, in your AppServiceProvider boot method.

  • Note: You do not need to add anything for the built-in socialite providers unless you override them with your own providers.
Event::listen(function (\SocialiteProviders\Manager\SocialiteWasCalled $event) {
    $event->extendSocialite('vatsim', \SocialiteProviders\Vatsim\Provider::class);
Laravel 10 or below Configure the package's listener to listen for `SocialiteWasCalled` events.

Add the event to your listen[] array in app/Providers/EventServiceProvider. See the Base Installation Guide for detailed instructions.

protected $listen = [
    \SocialiteProviders\Manager\SocialiteWasCalled::class => [
        // ... other providers


You should now be able to use the provider like you would regularly use Socialite (assuming you have the facade installed):

return Socialite::driver('vatsim')->redirect();

To add scopes to your Authentication you can use the below:

return Socialite::driver('vatsim')->scopes(['full_name', 'email', 'vatsim_details', 'country'])->redirect();

To add required scopes (those the user cannot opt out from) to your Authentication you can use the below:

return Socialite::driver('vatsim')->requiredScopes(['email'])->redirect();

  • cid
