Using artisan commands
You can create a role or permission from the console with artisan commands.
php artisan permission:create-role writer
php artisan permission:create-permission "edit articles"
When creating permissions/roles for specific guards you can specify the guard names as a second argument:
php artisan permission:create-role writer web
php artisan permission:create-permission "edit articles" web
When creating roles you can also create and link permissions at the same time:
php artisan permission:create-role writer web "create articles|edit articles"
There is also a
show command to show a table of roles and permissions per guard:
php artisan permission:show
When you use the built-in functions for manipulating roles and permissions, the cache is automatically reset for you, and relations are automatically reloaded for the current model record.
See the Advanced-Usage/Cache section of these docs for detailed specifics.
If you need to manually reset the cache for this package, you may use the following artisan command:
php artisan permission:cache-reset
Again, it is more efficient to use the API provided by this package, instead of manually clearing the cache.
