bkidd left a reply on How To Protect Data From Rest Clients

@testlara If a user gets credentials wouldn't the user have to authenticate and then they would only be getting their own credentials. Am I misunderstanding what you are asking?

bkidd started a new conversation Use Laravel/Auth0 Authentication On Vue/Axios API Requests

I've implemented Auth0 in my Laravel application using this guide (https://auth0.com/docs/quickstart/webapp/laravel/01-login) and it is working fine for my web routes.

I'd like to implement authentication on my api routes. It seems there should be some clean way to do this possibly handing off the token to Vue so it will be available each time I make an axios call to the backend but I'm not sure how to approach it.

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you.

I agree, I don't see any glaring problems. I've never used Beanstalkd but have used the database and SQS and never had to manually start the worker. Sorry I wasn't much help.

Database changes can be managed in version control like the rest of your application code.

Not sure about the API you are using but you may need to append "-> getContents()" on your GET request like this:

$res->getBody()->getContents()

No, you shouldn't have to start the queues manually. Check your connection and queue name to ensure they match your configuration. Include a screenshot of your Forge queue settings if you'd like.
