Password and Confirm Password Validation in Laravel

Feb 20, 2022, Originally published at techvblogs.com ・2 min read

Introduction

Laravel form requests are special classes that extend the functionality of regular request classes, enabling advanced validation features. Form requests also help to keep your controller actions a lot cleaner, because you can move all your validation logic to the form request class. Another benefit is that it allows you to filter requests before they reach your controller actions.

It’s always a good idea to put a password confirmation field in your forms since the password is a masked field and the user would never know if they made a typing mistake while filling out the password.

On the backend validation, you just need to use the confirmed validation rule for your password field.

$request->validate([
'password' => 'required|confirmed|min:6'
]);

Also in your HTML, you need to make sure the password field used to input confirmation from the user must be named password_confirmation.

<input id="password" type="password" name="password_confirmation" required>

Bootstrap FrontEnd Code for Laravel Password and Confirm Password Validation

Here is the bootstrap form code that includes both the fields and also displays an error when the validation fails.

<div class="form-group row">
<label for="password" class="col-md-4 col-form-label text-md-right">Password</label>
<div class="col-md-6">
<input id="password" type="password" class="form-control @error('password') is-invalid @enderror" name="password" required autocomplete="current-password">
@error('password')
<span class="invalid-feedback" role="alert">
<strong>{{ $message }}</strong>
</span>
@enderror
</div>
</div>
<div class="form-group row">
<label for="password" class="col-md-4 col-form-label text-md-right">Confirm Password</label>
<div class="col-md-6">
<input id="password" type="password" class="form-control @error('password') is-invalid @enderror" name="password_confirmation" required autocomplete="current-password">
</div>
</div>
