Can't call Auth::user() on controller's constructor

Posted 3 years ago by Naxon

I'm trying to check if the user has permission to a certain model. Up until now (with Laravel 5.2), I added this code at the constructor:

public function __construct()
    if (!Auth::user()->hasPermission('usergroups')) {

Now, after upgrading to Laravel 5.3,Auth::user() returns null when being called from the controller's constructor. If I call it within any other method of the class, it returns the currently logged in user.

Any Ideas why?
