Throwing exceptions vs returning response

Posted 3 years ago by poma

I've recently tried to use FormRequest and found out that it returns 403 response instead of throwing HttpException when authorisation fails:


Is it a bug or intended behaviour? I'm building a REST API and need unified JSON format for all errors. I've already customised my exception handler for that. But how am I supposed to track down all random pieces of code that decide to return a response by themselves?
