Replied to How To Detect When A User Leaves A Presence Channel, Server-side, On Laravel Echo?

Probably having a session id / token on server side for each client session running. An endpoint as well to be called to update session information when the client leaving event is detected.

Replied to How Do I Open Specific Page In My Android When Click The Push Notification Which Has Been Sent By Laravel

I think you might need to do deep linking within the android implementation. I know this guys branch.io have deep linking solutions for this. It might be worth checking out

Replied to AccessTokens For Machine To Machine Clients

Normally you would have sessions on the client application that will store the access token for a given duration. If the session expires after a set time - it means the client application / machine will logout and have to call the login API / request access token API.

Server side implementation should be such that it can issue a token and save it in a db. Sample db could look like this

`id`                BIGINT(20) NOT NULL, 
`access_token`      INT(11) DEFAULT NULL, 
`client_id` INT(11) DEFAULT NULL, 
`expires_timestamp` INT(11) DEFAULT NULL, 
`date_created`      TIMESTAMP NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP() 

So basically it can create unique access_tokens per client machine that expires after a set time. So the auth server should validate that the token is still valid before allowing the request to proceed.
