To generate a JWT refresh token in Laravel, you can follow these steps:

  1. Create a new refresh token column in your users table. You can do this using a migration:
1
php artisan make:migration add_refresh_token_to_users_table


In the migration file, add the following code:

1
2
3
Schema::table('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
    $table->string('refresh_token')->nullable();
});


Then run the migration:

1
php artisan migrate


  1. Install the tymon/jwt-auth package and configure it in your Laravel project. You can follow the installation instructions on the package repository: https://github.com/tymondesigns/jwt-auth
  2. Generate a JWT access token as usual when a user logs in, using the JWTAuth::attempt() method. Here is an example:
1
$token = JWTAuth::attempt($credentials);


  1. Generate a refresh token and store it in the refresh_token column of the user:
1
2
3
4
$user = Auth::user();
$refreshToken = Str::random(60);
$user->refresh_token = $refreshToken;
$user->save();


  1. Return the refresh token along with the access token in the response to the client:
1
2
3
4
return response()->json([
    'access_token' => $token,
    'refresh_token' => $refreshToken
]);


Now you have successfully generated a JWT refresh token in Laravel. You can use this refresh token to generate a new access token when the current one expires.
