Laravel 9 Custom Email Verification

Today now in this article i will show you how to implement laravel 9 custom email verification example. So it’s a very simple example of laravel 9 custom email verification with template. You can easily understand a concept of laravel 9 custom email verification system. Here you can see laravel 9 email verification example.

We know laravel is already provides an email verification feature by default. So still, if you want to do your own logic with the manual email verification process then here I will help you with step-by-step email verification in laravel application.

Let’s start follow the below step for the custom email verification.

Step 1: Install Laravel

At first of all we have to get the fresh Laravel version application by using the bellow command. So open your terminal OR command prompt and then run the bellow command:

composer create-project laravel/laravel example-app

Step 2: Create “users_verify” table

basically, i will create “users_verify” table and then add new column is “is_email_verified” in users table.

let’s create a new migration by using below command:

php artisan make:migration create_users_verify_table

Migration

<?php
  
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
  
class UsersVerify extends Migration
{
    /**
     * Run the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function up()
    {
        Schema::create('users_verify', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->integer('user_id');
            $table->string('token');
            $table->timestamps();
        });
  
        Schema::table('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->boolean('is_email_verified')->default(0);
        });
    }
  
    /**
     * Reverse the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function down()
    {
        
    }
}
Step 3: Create Model and Update Model

Then in this step, i need to add “is_email_verified” field on fillable array in User model and then create a new model call UserVerify as like as bellow:

app/Models/User.php

<?php
  
namespace App\Models;
  
use Illuminate\Contracts\Auth\MustVerifyEmail;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable;
  
class User extends Authenticatable
{
    use HasFactory, Notifiable;
  
    /**
     * The attributes that are mass assignable.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $fillable = [
        'name',
        'email',
        'password',
        'is_email_verified'
    ];
  
    /**
     * The attributes that should be hidden for arrays.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $hidden = [
        'password',
        'remember_token',
    ];
  
    /**
     * The attributes that should be cast to native types.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $casts = [
        'email_verified_at' => 'datetime',
    ];
}

app/Models/UserVerify.php

<?php
  
namespace App\Models;
  
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;
  
class UserVerify extends Model
{
    use HasFactory;
  
    public $table = "users_verify";
  
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    protected $fillable = [
        'user_id',
        'token',
    ];
  
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function user()
    {
        return $this->belongsTo(User::class);
    }
}

Step 4: Create Route

Now in this is step i have to create a custom route for the email verification. So just open your routes/web.php file and then add following route.

routes/web.php

<?php
  
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
  
use App\Http\Controllers\Auth\AuthController;
  
/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Web Routes
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These
| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which
| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!
|
*/
  
Route::get('login', [AuthController::class, 'index'])->name('login');
Route::post('post-login', [AuthController::class, 'postLogin'])->name('login.post'); 
Route::get('registration', [AuthController::class, 'registration'])->name('register');
Route::post('post-registration', [AuthController::class, 'postRegistration'])->name('register.post'); 
Route::get('logout', [AuthController::class, 'logout'])->name('logout');
  
/* New Added Routes */
Route::get('dashboard', [AuthController::class, 'dashboard'])->middleware(['auth', 'is_verify_email']); 
Route::get('account/verify/{token}', [AuthController::class, 'verifyAccount'])->name('user.verify'); 

Step 5: Create Controller

Now in this step, i have to create AuthController, now i will updated my code on postRegistration() and verifyAccount() method, let’s copy as like as bellow:

app/Http/Controllers/Auth/AuthController.php

<?php
  
namespace App\Http\Controllers\Auth;
  
use App\Http\Controllers\Controller;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Auth;
use Session;
use App\Models\User;
use App\Models\UserVerify;
use Hash;
use Illuminate\Support\Str;
use Mail; 
  
class AuthController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function index()
    {
        return view('auth.login');
    }  
      
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function registration()
    {
        return view('auth.registration');
    }
      
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function postLogin(Request $request)
    {
        $request->validate([
            'email' => 'required',
            'password' => 'required',
        ]);
   
        $credentials = $request->only('email', 'password');
        if (Auth::attempt($credentials)) {
            return redirect()->intended('dashboard')
                        ->withSuccess('You have Successfully loggedin');
        }
  
        return redirect("login")->withSuccess('Oppes! You have entered invalid credentials');
    }
    
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function postRegistration(Request $request)
    {  
        $request->validate([
            'name' => 'required',
            'email' => 'required|email|unique:users',
            'password' => 'required|min:6',
        ]);
           
        $data = $request->all();
        $createUser = $this->create($data);
  
        $token = Str::random(64);
  
        UserVerify::create([
              'user_id' => $createUser->id, 
              'token' => $token
            ]);
  
        Mail::send('email.emailVerificationEmail', ['token' => $token], function($message) use($request){
              $message->to($request->email);
              $message->subject('Email Verification Mail');
          });
         
        return redirect("dashboard")->withSuccess('Great! You have Successfully loggedin');
    }
    
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function dashboard()
    {
        if(Auth::check()){
            return view('dashboard');
        }
  
        return redirect("login")->withSuccess('Opps! You do not have access');
    }
    
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function create(array $data)
    {
      return User::create([
        'name' => $data['name'],
        'email' => $data['email'],
        'password' => Hash::make($data['password'])
      ]);
    }
      
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function logout() {
        Session::flush();
        Auth::logout();
  
        return Redirect('login');
    }
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function verifyAccount($token)
    {
        $verifyUser = UserVerify::where('token', $token)->first();
  
        $message = 'Sorry your email cannot be identified.';
  
        if(!is_null($verifyUser) ){
            $user = $verifyUser->user;
              
            if(!$user->is_email_verified) {
                $verifyUser->user->is_email_verified = 1;
                $verifyUser->user->save();
                $message = "Your e-mail is verified. You can now login.";
            } else {
                $message = "Your e-mail is already verified. You can now login.";
            }
        }
  
      return redirect()->route('login')->with('message', $message);
    }
}

Step 6: Create Blade File

here, i have to create the blade files for email only. So let’s start and create one by one file:

resources/views/emails/emailVerificationEmail.blade.php

<h1>Email Verification Mail</h1>
  
Please verify your email with bellow link: 
<a href="{{ route('user.verify', $token) }}">Verify Email</a>
Step 7: Create Middleware

here, i have to create the middleware for checking user email is verified or not. So let’s start and create as like bellow:

php artisan make:middleware IsVerifyEmail

app/Http/Middleware/IsVerifyEmail.php

<?php
  
namespace App\Http\Middleware;
  
use Closure;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Auth;
  
class IsVerifyEmail
{
    /**
     * Handle an incoming request.
     *
     * @param  \Illuminate\Http\Request  $request
     * @param  \Closure  $next
     * @return mixed
     */
    public function handle(Request $request, Closure $next)
    {
        if (!Auth::user()->is_email_verified) {
            auth()->logout();
            return redirect()->route('login')
                    ->with('message', 'You need to confirm your account. We have sent you an activation code, please check your email.');
          }
   
        return $next($request);
    }
}

app/Http/Kernel.php

protected $routeMiddleware = [
    ....
    'is_verify_email' => \App\Http\Middleware\IsVerifyEmail::class,
];

Step 8: Email Configuration

Now in this step, i will add email configuration on the env file, because i will send email to reset password as link from controller:

.env

MAIL_DRIVER=smtp
MAIL_HOST=smtp-mail.outlook.com
MAIL_PORT=587
MAIL_USERNAME=example@hotmail.com
MAIL_PASSWORD=123456789
MAIL_ENCRYPTION=tls
MAIL_FROM_ADDRESS=example@hotmail.com
Run Laravel App:

All the needed steps have been done, now we have to type the given in the below command and then hit enter to run the Laravel application:

php artisan serve
