How to Refresh the User object in Laravel

0 votes

In Laravel you can do this:

$user = Auth::user();

Problem is, if I do changes on items on that object, it will give me what was there before my changes. How do I refresh the object to get the latest values? I.e. To force it to get the latest values from the DB?

Hello @kartik,

You can update the cache object like this.

Auth::setUser($user);

for Example

$user = User::find(Auth::user()->id);
$user->name = 'New Name';
$user->save();

Auth::setUser($user);

log::error(Auth::user()->name)); // Will be 'NEW Name'

Hope it helps!!

Thank You!!
