# 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

  • The seeder is going to work with the first user model inside the user_models array.

  • The seeder doesn't support teams.

To generate the seeder you have to run:

php artisan laratrust:seeder

and

composer dump-autoload

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 by default:

return [
    ...
    'roles_structure' => [
        'superadministrator' => [
            'users' => 'c,r,u,d',
            'payments' => 'c,r,u,d',
            'profile' => 'r,u'
        ],
        'administrator' => [
            'users' => 'c,r,u,d',
            'profile' => 'r,u'
        ],
        'user' => [
            'profile' => 'r,u',
        ],
        'role_name' => [
            'module_1_name' => 'c,r,u,d',
        ]
    ],
    'permissions_map' => [
        'c' => 'create',
        'r' => 'read',
        'u' => 'update',
        'd' => 'delete'
    ],
    ...
];

To understand the role_structure you must know:

  • The first level represents the roles.
  • The second level represents 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',
        ],
    ]
];

# Permissions

In case that you do not want to use the c,r,u,d permissions, you should change the permissions_map.

For example:

return [
    ...
    'roles_structure' => [
        'role_name' => [
            'module_1_name' => 'a,s,e,d',
        ]
    ],
    'permissions_map' => [
        'a' => 'add',
        's' => 'show',
        'e' => 'edit',
        'd' => 'destroy'
    ],
    ...
];
