How to test POST routes in Laravel

0 votes

I'm doing the following to test a POST call to Laravel. I'm expecting that POST to questions, in accordance with my routes, will be dispatches as the store action method. This works in the browser.

My test:

public function setUp()
    {   
        parent::setUp();

        Session::start();
    }

    public function testStoreAction()
    {
        $response = $this->call('POST', 'questions', array(
            '_token' => csrf_token(),
        ));

        $this->assertRedirectedTo('questions');
    }

However, I tells me that the redirect doesn't match. Also, I can see that it isn't going to the store action method at all. I want to know what action method it is going to, and why it isn't going to the store method (if I look at route:list I can see there is a POST questions/ route that should go to questions.store; this also works in the browser, but not in my tests).

Hello @kartik,

You could try this:

public function testStoreAction()
{
    Session::start();
    $response = $this->call('POST', 'questions', array(
        '_token' => csrf_token(),
    ));
    $this->assertEquals(302, $response->getStatusCode());
    $this->assertRedirectedTo('questions');
}

Hope it helps!!
Thank you!!
