Replied to Policy Always Returns 403

hello guys thanks for your support i have found my issue. it was actually twofold case one was

Gate::before(function($user, $ability) {
            return $user->isAdmin();
        });

so if you where a normal user and not admin this naturally returns false so that makes the result false

Gate::before(function($user, $ability) {
            if ($user->isAdmin()) {
                return true;
            }

        });

so with this if a user is admin will return true else it will proceed to the policy

the second actually comes from a previous comment @wilburpowery

where i replied that the documentation says that you suppose to send a full class name if it is not receiving an instance

 public function view(User $user, Lecture $lecture)
    {
        return $user->isSubscribed();
    }

the documentation actually refers to the case of create ex.

    public function create(User $user)
    {
        //
    }

so thank you all for your comment.

Replied to Policy Always Returns 403

@DIEGOAURINO - hey thanks for the reply. i have checked the policies namespace/path i used hardcoded paths. the problem is not just on lecture

something that maybe "different" from the normal implementation is that i am using passport for api authentication.

i am using the Passport::actingAs($user); in the tests

also something that i have noticed is that on the AuthServiceProvider

i have the

Gate::before(function($user, $ability) {
            return $user->isAdmin();
        });

which it should be allowing the request if i was running as admin but still not working

@DIEGOAURINO - hey thanks for the reply i have tried that with no success. keep in mind that this is laravel 5.8 that i shouldn't have to do this.

Replied to Policy Always Returns 403

@WILBURPOWERY - Hey thank you for the reply i was trying to do what says in the documentation for methods that don't have Models. https://laravel.com/docs/5.8/authorization#methods-without-models

i have tried with the way you suggested and no success. i have also removed the Model from the method

public function view(User $user) {
return true;
}

and still no success.

Started a new Conversation Policy Always Returns 403

Hello all i have been having an issue while testing an api endpoint

i have tried introducing a policy into the project and still trying to figure it out the policy is

    /**
     * Determine whether the user can view the lecture.
     *
     * @param \App\Models\User $user
     * @param \App\Models\Lecture $lecture
     * @return mixed
     */
    public function view(User $user,Lecture $lecture) {
        return true;
    }

the controller

    /**
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     *
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     * @throws \Illuminate\Auth\Access\AuthorizationException
     */
    public function index() {
        $this->authorize('view',Lecture::class);

        return ['data','meta'];
    }

Test

    public function test_that_lectures_are_viewed_publicly() {

        $response = $this->getJson($this->getEndpoint('lectures'));

        $response->assertOk();
        $response->assertJsonStructure(['data', 'meta']);

    }

public function getEndpoint($endpoint, $append = null) {

        if ($append) {
            return $this->endpoint_prefix . $endpoint . '/' . $append;
        }

        return $this->endpoint_prefix . $endpoint;

    }

i have registered the Policy in the Auth Service provider

    protected $policies = [
        // 'App\Model' => 'App\Policies\ModelPolicy',
        Course::class           => CoursePolicy::class,
        Lecture::class          => LecturePolicy::class,
        SubscriptionPlan::class => SubscriptionPlanPolicy::class,
    ];

 /**
     * Register any authentication / authorization services.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function boot() {

        $this->registerPolicies();

        Passport::routes();

        Gate::before(function($user, $ability) {

            return $user->isAdmin();
        });
    }

problem is that i always get a 403 if anyone could help would appreciate it. Laravel 5.8 is used
