# After Installation

# Configuration Files

In your config/laratrust.php file you will find all the package configurations that you can customize.

# Teams Feature

If you want to use the teams feature that allows you to attach roles and permissions to an user depending on a team, you must change the use_teams key value to true in your config/laratrust.php file. Then follow the teams configuration guide.

# Multiple User Models

In the config/laratrust.php file you will find an user_models array, it contains the information about the multiple user models and the name of the relationships inside the Role and Permission models. For example:

'user_models' => [
    'users' => 'App\User',


The value of the key in the key => value pair defines the name of the relationship inside the Role and Permission models.

It means that there is only one user model using Laratrust, and the relationship with the Role and Permission models is going to be called like this:



Inside the role_user and permission_user tables the user_type column will be set with the user's fully qualified class name, as the polymorphic relations describe it in Laravel docs.

If you want to use the MorphMap feature just change the use_morph_map value to true in Laratrust's configuration file.

If you want to let laratrust to setup by itself, just run the following command

php artisan laratrust:setup


If Laravel does not recognize this command, the Laratrust service provider hasn't been registered. Check providers array in config/app.php and try clearing your configuration cache

php artisan config:clear

This command will generate the migrations, create the Role and Permission models (if you are using the teams feature it will also create a Team model) and will add the trait to the configured user models.


The user trait will be added to the models configured in the config/laratrust.php file.

And then do not forget to run

composer dump-autoload


If you did the steps above you are done with the configuration, if not, please read and follow the whole configuration process
