Seeder

Laratrust comes with a database seeder, this seeder helps you fill the permissions for each role depending on the module, and creates one user for each role.

NOTE

Laratrust now accepts multiple user models so the seeder is going to work with the first user model inside the user_models array.

NOTE

Laratrust now has teams feature, the seeder doesn't support it.

To generate the seeder you have to run

php artisan laratrust:seeder

and

composer dump-autoload

And in the database/seeds/DatabaseSeeder.php file you have to add this to the run method:

$this->call(LaratrustSeeder::class);

NOTE

If you have not run php artisan vendor:publish --tag="laratrust" you should run it in order to customize the roles, modules and permissions in each case.

Your config/laratrust_seeder.php file looks like this:

return [
    'role_structure' => [
        'superadministrator' => [
            'users' => 'c,r,u,d',
            'acl' => 'c,r,u,d',
            'profile' => 'r,u'
        ],
        'administrator' => [
            'users' => 'c,r,u,d',
            'profile' => 'r,u'
        ],
        'user' => [
                'profile' => 'r,u'
        ],
    ],
    'permission_structure' => [
        'cru_user' => [
            'profile' => 'c,r,u'
        ],
    ],
    ...
];

To understand the role_structure you must know:

  • The first level is the roles.
  • The second level is the modules.
  • The second level assignments are the permissions.

With that in mind, you should arrange your roles, modules and permissions like this:

return [
    'role_structure' => [
        'role' => [
            'module' => 'permissions',
        ],
    ]
];

To understand the permission_structure you must know:

  • The first level is the users.
  • The second level is the modules.
  • The second level assignments are the permissions.

With that in mind, you should arrange your users, modules and permissions like this:

return [
    'permission_structure' => [
        'user' => [
            'module' => 'permissions',
        ],
    ]
];

Permissions

In case that you do not want to use the c,r,u,d permissions, in the config/laratrust_seeder.php there the permissions_map where you can change the permissions mapping.
