Laravel 5.3 Passport API unauthenticated in Postman using personal access tokens

Posted 2 years ago by twiggy99

I have set-up Laravel using passport as per the documentation here: https://laravel.com/docs/5.3/passport

A few people have asked about this using the oAuth implementation but I'm trying to use the personal access tokens not oAuth. One suggestion was to remove the auth middleware but obviously this leaves the application wide open so anyone can make requests.

I have the following route (in routes/api.php):

Route::get('/test', function(){
    return 'returned string from test route';
})->middleware('auth:api');

This works if I remove the auth middleware so the route is working correctly but when enabling the auth middleware again I get the following error in postman:

{"error":"Unauthenticated."}

These are the headers being sent via postman:

GET /api/test HTTP/1.1
Host: localhost:8000
Authorization: Bearer eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsImp0aSI6ImU4ZmY5MDMwY2EyM2E2MDYwODViN2Y3ZWNiMzcxNDY1MzQxNDViNTk4ODU4NmZhNDljYzU2YjMzYWZiNzhkYTk5OTIwZWMzYzEwNTBkNjZjIn0.eyJhdWQiOiIyIiwianRpIjoiZThmZjkwMzBjYTIzYTYwNjA4NWI3ZjdlY2IzNzE0NjUzNDE0NWI1OTg4NTg2ZmE0OWNjNTZiMzNhZmI3OGRhOTk5MjBlYzNjMTA1MGQ2NmMiLCJpYXQiOjE0NzU1MDMxNjUsIm5iZiI6MTQ3NTUwMzE2NSwiZXhwIjowLCJzdWIiOiIxIiwic2NvcGVzIjpbXX0.IpzKK29dJCpliUXQvPRss87kGFngFcXXwV3jRwhbZOZLxl-4UV70cBsSigmqUuBsHQ4onVl_Cjcq6cEmMFvTZZr7D9AtY3EmScvMPjoFh4KQ3wgd5CoyWfcLQgoBxbElNxL0xW2fIQhpeQd_8Yz_Pr5BByGVTpxfg4JJZ4PzovvZsa2R3izYtqw6-qeurQOtsfOnot5uoLDeDDc76klifnfHfOcNZSoIFGNP3gIGKYBe6lfFuDViR_mQkwQS5_UmERt3GSkEvJjGMtwcRjWY7VPAJ4tvWLnyLw0roGU2e37L0wsqfJ8OrG0Cipv-anXAW_utSo-fiVMr8ZeAWIPguq73Zd44x95YY3nNPOKD5dVIRZM7rQgdhjIwTEz1ggtSXLp-Fu3QOtXaHUahCHvjOTdiTYEa-GR4TZ5wGzt-aRhjdBB7WTe0C6T9ZWVwQr0kJk8AxW6ne87wwJYp_shGunTclZ3SCq5VYg2K_MclbJl65-dT8x-nwqg0lqfNx9s1wmtryrMFIPoBEyaGNEK1aWGHKq418-BIQ1_UAhcHHtEXclWvsGWwhyo3aso-E-sCN2o_IkYvSboIsdFAIXvDvQmoAwis6f1J57zWH8AW1ynCFcBgzBDjIyiaCE5nqtb_4zbEXr8L1EbcllbtZkq3vd9w996kO7xlpBEWwPY8IWg
