Laravel plugin that helps authenticate with the upbond auth service

v1.1.6 2021-04-29 00:10 UTC


This package is inspired by Auth0


Please see the Laravel webapp quickstart for a complete guide on how to install this in an existing project or to download a pre-configured sample project. Additional documentation on specific scenarios is below.

Setting up


Setting up a JWKs cache

In the register method of your AppServiceProvider add:

// app/Providers/AppServiceProvider.php
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Cache;
// ...
    public function register()
        // ...
            function() {
                static $cacheWrapper = null;
                if ($cacheWrapper === null) {
                $cache = Cache::store();
                $cacheWrapper = new LaravelCacheWrapper($cache);
            return $cacheWrapper;

Setting up for lumen


Update .env for your env default to api.upbond.io


You can implement your own cache strategy by creating a new class that implements the Auth\SDK\Helpers\Cache\CacheHandler contract, or just use the cache strategy you want by picking that store with Cache::store('your_store_name');

Storing users in your database

You can customize the way you handle the users in your application by creating your own UserRepository. This class should implement the Auth\Login\Contract\AuthUserRepository contract. Please see the Custom User Handling section of the Laravel Quickstart for the latest example.

Using auth guard

To protect APIs using an access token generated by Auth, there is an upbond API guard provided (Laravel documentation on guards). To use this guard, add it to config/auth.php with the driver upbond:

'providers' => [
    'users' => [
        'driver' => 'upbond',

Once that has been added, add the guard to the middleware of any API route and check authentication during the request:

// get user
// check if logged in
// protect routes via middleware use
Route::group(['middleware' => 'auth:upbond'], function () {});

Route::get( '/auth/callback', '\Upbond\Auth\Login\AuthController@callback' )->name( 'auth-callback' );

env file



Install this plugin into a new or existing project using Composer:

$ composer require upbond/laravel-auth

Additional steps to install can be found in the quickstart.

What is Auth?

Auth helps you to easily:

  • implement authentication with multiple identity providers, including social (e.g., Google, Facebook, Microsoft, LinkedIn, GitHub, Twitter, etc), or enterprise (e.g., Windows Azure AD, Google Apps, Active Directory, ADFS, SAML, etc.)
  • log in users with username/password databases, passwordless, or multi-factor authentication
  • link multiple user accounts together
  • generate signed JSON Web Tokens to authorize your API calls and flow the user identity securely
  • access demographics and analytics detailing how, when, and where users are logging in
  • enrich user profiles from other data sources using customizable JavaScript rules
