To redirect a user after login in Laravel, you can use the redirect helper function. Here's an example of how to use it:

1
2
3
4
if (Auth::attempt($credentials)) {
    // Authentication passed...
    return redirect()->intended('dashboard');
}


In this example, the user will be redirected to the dashboard route if the login credentials are valid. If you want to redirect the user to a different route, simply replace dashboard with the desired route name.


If you want to redirect the user to a specific URL instead of a route, you can use the to method:

1
return redirect()->to('https://example.com');


You can also pass a second argument to the to method to specify the status code for the redirect. For example:

1
return redirect()->to('https://example.com', 302);


This will send a 302 (Found) status code with the redirect.

In Laravel, you can redirect to a specific route after the user successfully logs in by using the redirectTo property in the LoginController class.


First, make sure that the LoginController has the RedirectsUsers trait included. This trait provides the necessary logic for redirecting after the login.


Next, locate the LoginController file located at app/Http/Controllers/Auth/LoginController.php. Look for the redirectTo property and modify it accordingly:

1
protected $redirectTo = '/dashboard'; // Change '/dashboard' to the desired route


In this example, the user will be redirected to the /dashboard route. You can update the value to any route within your application.


If you want to define the redirect route dynamically, you can override the redirectTo method in the LoginController class. For example:

1
2
3
4
protected function redirectTo()
{
    return '/dashboard';
}


You can also redirect the user to the previous page they were on before being redirected to the login page by using the intended method. This method will store the intended URL in the session and redirect the user to that URL after a successful login.


To use the intended method, you need to include the RedirectsUsers trait and call the intended method within the sendLoginResponse method of the LoginController class.


Here's an example of how to use the intended method:

use IlluminateHttpRequest;
use IlluminateSupportFacadesAuth;
use IlluminateFoundationAuthRedirectsUsers;

class LoginController extends Controller
{
    use RedirectsUsers;

    // ...

    protected function sendLoginResponse(Request $request)
    {
        $request->session()->regenerate();

        $this->clearLoginAttempts($request);

        return $this->authenticated($request, $this->guard()->user())
            ?: redirect()->intended($this->redirectPath());
    }
}


By including redirect()->intended($this->redirectPath()) in the sendLoginResponse method, Laravel will redirect the user to the intended URL saved in the session, or fallback to the default redirect path specified by the redirectPath method in the LoginController class.
