The authentication system in Laravel 10 provides a unified interface for managing user registration, login, and other authentication-related functions. However, there may be times when you need to customise and adjust the authentication process’s default behaviour to match the specific needs of your project. Overriding the Auth Register function is one such scenario.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to override the Auth Register method in Laravel 10. This gives you complete control over the registration process and allows you to apply custom logic such as additional user data collecting, integration with external services, or specialised validation stages.

Laravel authentication via laravel ui package provides the simple steps to override auth register method, login method etc.

Let’s get started.

Laravel Installation

Open terminal and run this command to create a laravel project.

composer create-project laravel/laravel myblog

It will create a project folder with name myblog inside your local system.

To start the development server of laravel –

php artisan serve

URL: http://127.0.0.1:8000

Assuming laravel already installed inside your system.

Next,

We will see how to change or override auth register method of laravel authentication.

Authentication Routes

Open project into terminal, if you type this command.

$ php artisan route:list

You will see all hidden routes of laravel authentication.

To override login function or say login() method you need to work on RegisterController.php file /app/Http/Controllers/Auth folder.

Override Register in Authentication

Open RegisterController.php file from /app/Http/Controllers/Auth folder.

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers\Auth;

use App\Http\Controllers\Controller;
use App\Providers\RouteServiceProvider;
use App\Models\User;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\RegistersUsers;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Hash;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Validator;

class RegisterController extends Controller
{
    /*
    |--------------------------------------------------------------------------
    | Register Controller
    |--------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |
    | This controller handles the registration of new users as well as their
    | validation and creation. By default this controller uses a trait to
    | provide this functionality without requiring any additional code.
    |
    */

    use RegistersUsers;

    /**
     * Where to redirect users after registration.
     *
     * @var string
     */
    protected $redirectTo = RouteServiceProvider::HOME;

    /**
     * Create a new controller instance.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function __construct()
    {
        $this->middleware('guest');
    }

    /**
     * Get a validator for an incoming registration request.
     *
     * @param  array  $data
     * @return \Illuminate\Contracts\Validation\Validator
     */
    protected function validator(array $data)
    {
        return Validator::make($data, [
            'name' => ['required', 'string', 'max:255'],
            'mobile' => ['required', 'max:20'],
            'email' => ['required', 'string', 'email', 'max:255', 'unique:users'],
            'password' => ['required', 'string', 'min:8', 'confirmed'],
        ]);
    }

    /**
     * Create a new user instance after a valid registration.
     *
     * @param  array  $data
     * @return \App\Models\User
     */
    protected function create(array $data)
    {
        return User::create([
            'name' => $data['name'],
            'mobile' => $data['mobile'],
            'email' => $data['email'],
            'password' => Hash::make($data['password']),
        ]);
    }

    // Custom Register form
    public function showRegistrationForm()
    {
        return view('register');
    }
}

We have added a method showRegistrationForm() to override the default auth register page.

Also, we updated validator() method for field validations. Added line –

'mobile' => ['required', 'max:20'],

Update create() method to create a mobile field with post data. Added line –

'mobile' => $data['mobile'],

Next,

We need to create / update register.blade.php layout file inside /resources/views folder.

Custom Register Blade Template

Create a layout file named as register.blade.php inside /resources/views folder.

Open file and write this complete code into it.

@extends('layouts.app')

@section('content')
<div class="container">
    <div class="row justify-content-center">
        <div class="col-md-8">

                <div class="card-body">
                    <form method="POST" action="{{ route('register') }}">
