Get a password reset token

Posted 3 years ago by josh18

I'm trying to access the create function inside of Illuminate\Auth\Passwords\DatabaseTokenRepository but I'm not sure of the best way to do this.

I'm new to Laravel so please forgive me if there is an obvious answer to this, I have done a lot of research but I just can't seem to find anything. The closest I've come is to create a facade in Illuminate/Support/Facades which looks like:


namespace Illuminate\Support\Facades;

 * @see \Illuminate\Auth\Passwords\DatabaseTokenRepository
class PasswordToken extends Facade
     * Get the registered name of the component.
     * @return string
    protected static function getFacadeAccessor()
        return 'auth.password.tokens';

and then adding 'PasswordToken' => Illuminate\Support\Facades\PasswordToken::class to config/app.php. This then lets me do $token = PasswordToken::create($user);

Am I even close to doing this the right way?
