In Laravel, you can test unauthorized methods by using the actingAs method in your test cases. This method allows you to authenticate as a specific user before performing the test.


Here's an example of how you can test an unauthorized method in Laravel:

public function testUnauthorizedMethod()
{
    // Create a user without any roles or permissions
    $user = factory(User::class)->create();

    // Acting as the user without any roles or permissions
    $this->actingAs($user);

    // Call the unauthorized method you want to test
    $response = $this->get('/unauthorized');

    // Assert that the response status code is 403 (Forbidden)
    $response->assertForbidden();
}


In this example, the actingAs method is used to authenticate as a user without any roles or permissions. Then, the get method is used to call the unauthorized method (in this case, the /unauthorized route). Finally, the assertForbidden method is used to assert that the response status code is 403 (Forbidden), indicating that the method is unauthorized for the user.


Note that you may need to customize this example based on your own application's authentication and authorization setup.
