The Complete Guide how to Override Auth Login in Laravel


Laravel's authentication system is easy to set up and use, but it may not always meet the specific requirements of your application. For instance, you may need to add an additional layer of security, or you may want to change the way the authentication system works. In such cases, you can override the Auth login in Laravel. In this article, we will show you how to do it step-by-step.

Step 1: Create a Custom Login Controller

The first step in overriding the Auth login in Laravel is to create a custom login controller. To do this, you need to run the following command in your terminal:

php artisan make:controller LoginController

Step 2: Define the Login Method

Next, you need to define the login method in your custom login controller. The login method should include the logic for verifying the user's credentials and logging them in.

public function login(Request $request)
    $validatedData = $request->validate([
        'email' => 'required|email',
        'password' => 'required|min:8',
    if (Auth::attempt($validatedData)) {
        return redirect()->intended('dashboard');
    return back()->withInput($request->only('email'));

Step 3: Update the Route

After defining the login method, you need to update the route to use the custom login controller. You can do this by adding the following code to your web.php file:

Route::post('login', [LoginController::class, 'login']);

Step 4: Update the View

Finally, you need to update the view that contains the login form to use the custom login controller. You can do this by changing the action attribute of the form to /login.

<form action="/login" method="post">
  <div class="form-group">
    <label for="email">Email address</label>
    <input type="email" class="form-control" id="email" name="email" required>

  <div class="form-group">
    <label for="password">Password</label>
    <input type="password" class="form-control" id="password" name="password" required>

  <button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary">Login</button>

I hope it will helpful for you.
