To change the authentication model in Laravel, you can follow these steps:

  1. Create a new model for authentication: First, you need to create a new model for authentication. You can generate a new model using the following command:
1
php artisan make:model NewAuthModel


This will create a new model file in the app/ directory.

  1. Define the new authentication model: In the newly created model file, you need to define the properties and methods required for authentication. This includes implementing the Authenticatable interface and using the Authenticatable trait.

use IlluminateDatabaseEloquentModel;
use IlluminateContractsAuthAuthenticatable;

class NewAuthModel extends Model implements Authenticatable
{
    use IlluminateAuthAuthenticatable;
    // Define your model properties and methods here
}


  1. Update the config/auth.php file: Next, you need to update the config/auth.php configuration file to use the new authentication model. In the providers section, change the model key to point to the new model class:

'providers' => [
    'users' => [
        'driver' => 'eloquent',
        'model' => AppNewAuthModel::class,
    ],
],


  1. Update your authentication controllers and views: If you have any authentication controllers or views that reference the default User model, you will need to update them to use the new authentication model instead.
  2. Migrate your database: Finally, don't forget to run any necessary database migrations to create the table for your new authentication model.


That's it! You have now changed the authentication model in Laravel to use your custom model.
