Replied to Laravel Sanctum And Vue - Unauthenticated Error

I am a few months late to this, but I have built a Vue/Laravel SPA using Passport in Laravel 7 and am now trying to build a Laravel 8 site with a few Vue components throughout (more reactive pages), and ran into the same issue above.

For me, I can't force users to re-authenticate just to access certain pages, so it makes sense for me to change the middleware to "web", to only check for sessions instead of JSON Web Tokens. A full-fledged Vue SPA needs that api middleware to function properly because you will not be able to consistently refresh that session information via API requests.

What I suspect is happening above is a token/session mismatch. Your authentication is returning a session instead of a token and Axios is attaching the session data to each request instead of a token. This may be due to how your api driver is set in your auth.php. Regardless, your axios requests likely do not have an Authorization header- which is what Sanctum needs to authenticate API requests.

Now, Sanctum's docs imply that authenticating by session is still possible via the auth:sanctum middleware, but judging by our experiences here that does not seem to be the case. If there is no token, it fails- either because Axios didn't include it in the request or because Axios never had it returned from the initial login.

Unfortunately I do not have any code recommendations as my fix is what's listed above. However, I believe how you're handling your login suggests that it has been built to deal in sessions rather than tokens, and altering the authentication process to return a token instead should intuitively function as intended.
