Started a new Conversation JWT Tymon - How To Get User Id From Expired Token?

Hello, I want to implement refresh token mechanism in my laravel server API .

I store my refresh_token in user table and create it everytime when user are login.

When access token gonna expired client have to call refresh-token endpoint.

In my refreshToken function I should check if recived refresh_token is exactly thesame as refresh_token from database but I dont know how can I get user id from expired JWT token?

I'm using Tymon JWT v1.0.

Any idea?

thank you

Replied to Price Calculated From Some Pattern

But I think this is to few to create functionality described above.

I need dynamicly create something like this pattern for parameter created by client :

if(param 1 == "TYPE B" || param3 < 10){

price = value*10*param7

}elseif(param1 == "TYPE C" && param4 != "wood"){

price = value/4*12-param6

}else{ price = (value/param2 *12)+100 }

Started a new Conversation Price Calculated From Some Pattern

Hello, I have try to figure out problem with calculating prices in some web system.

This is system for door price calculations. Doors in system have some parameters like, material, size, border width, type of handle etc. Some of this parameters are demends on price directly (if handle type A then price + 100 $) but in some parameters price depends on many other parameters/values (if material is wood and width is greater than 20 price = value*10$ but if material is plastic and height is < 200cm then price is value-10 *12$).

Customer want to create some new parameters and create price calculation patterns like above (now he create this in excel).

Which way is the best for implement this? I thought about some smart patterns stored in database (quasi language like in excel) or maybe parameter will be connected to dedicated "helper" calculated price like function (but how can I write helpers from WWW panel)?

Or maybe this is very bad idea to give customer the option to enter complex functions for calculating price ?

thank you for any sugestions K.

Started a new Conversation Best Way To Manage Users Divided By Roles

Hello, I have some doubt. I'm creating system for rent flats and actors in system are users with two roles (tenants, and landlords). In database I contained all users in one "users" table because their are very similar. But on controller or views level I supose that should be devided ... maybe use dedicated controllers? maybe dedicated methods in the same controller? and what about views ? better way is using "if else" statments to dynamic modyfing common view or mayby better way is create separated views for each role ?

What is your approach ?

thank you
