You can use this package to implement Login and authentication functionalities on the fly relying on laravel passport package.


Since we are goingn to use autheticon of laravel we need to install laravel/ui package first

laravel/ui package

composer require laravel/ui


1- You can install the package via composer:

composer require sonmez/laravel-passport-auth

2- After Successfull installation please run the following commands :

As mentioned in the laravel/passport documentation (see here the first thing we need to do after we have installed the package, is run the migrations:

php artisan migrate

With this command, you will have in your database all the laravel/passport tables (prefixed by oauth_) and the users table. Now, we need to configure the laravel/passport package, by executing the next command:

php artisan passport:install

This command will generate 2 tokens in the oauth_clients, for my case I have the following tokens:

Personal access client created successfully.
Client ID: 1
Client secret: phNVmQWF0qxWrSw1thVzsx5B55w7Lm6cPUvDjgQo
Password grant client created successfully.
Client ID: 2
Client secret: srKHlpLcnyLaBhZmQsAIuztgY7C0N8gjZPFKjYgu

please take a copy of the second secret as we are going to need it cause we are implemnting the password protected authentication

After that, we need to configure our User model by adding the Laravel\Passport\HasApiTokens trait to it:


namespace App;

use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable;
use Laravel\Passport\HasApiTokens; // <- HERE

class User extends Authenticatable
    use Notifiable, HasApiTokens; // <- HERE
    // ...

Then, we need to add Passport::routes() to the boot() function in the AuthServiceProvider


namespace App\Providers;

use Illuminate\Foundation\Support\Providers\AuthServiceProvider as ServiceProvider;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Gate;
use Laravel\Passport\Passport; // <- HERE

class AuthServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
     * The policy mappings for the application.
     * @var array
    protected $policies = [
        'App\Model' => 'App\Policies\ModelPolicy',

     * Register any authentication / authorization services.
     * @return void
    public function boot()

        Passport::routes(); // <- HERE

then we are going to execute this command and this will publish the login and Authentication controller along with requried middelware and routes in the (api.php) route file

php artisan laravel-passport-auth:publish

You will notice that there is one folder created inside your app folder "Api\Auth" along with two controllers
that has the login and logout with verify token

last thing : remember we took a copy of CLient 2 secret you need to open .env file and copy the value to PASSPORT_CLIENT_SECRET field and now we are done you can test it by postman and make a post request to /api/login method as an example
