Use Casbin in Laravel.

It is worth mentioning that we now recommend laravel-authz.


Require this package in the composer.json of your Laravel project. This will download the package.

composer require casbin/laravel-adapter

The CasbinAdapter\Laravel\CasbinServiceProvider is auto-discovered and registered by default, but if you want to register it yourself:

Add the ServiceProvider in config/app.php

'providers' => [
     * Package Service Providers...

The Casbin facade is also auto-discovered, but if you want to add it manually:

Add the Facade in config/app.php

'aliases' => [
    // ...
    'Casbin' => CasbinAdapter\Laravel\Facades\Casbin::class,

To publish the config, run the vendor publish command:

php artisan vendor:publish

This will create a new model config file named config/casbin-basic-model.conf and a new casbin config file named config/casbin.php.

To migrate the migrations, run the migrate command:

php artisan migrate

This will create a new table named casbin_rule


use \Casbin;

$sub = "alice"; // the user that wants to access a resource.
$obj = "data1"; // the resource that is going to be accessed.
$act = "read"; // the operation that the user performs on the resource.

if (Casbin::enforce($sub, $obj, $act) === true) {
    // permit alice to read data1
} else {
    // deny the request, show an error

Define your own model.conf

You can modify the config file named config/casbin-basic-model.conf

Learning Casbin

You can find the full documentation of Casbin on the website.
