How do I authenticate a user in Laravel 8 Jetstream only if his status is active?

From: Apia View: 4873 Debajeet Choudhury 


I am building a Laravel 8 application and have successfully implemented authentication. Now I want to check if a user's status is active before logging him in. I have added a field in the users table

username varchar
password varchar
status tinyint(1)

I am using JetStream and Fortify

Thank You

You can customize user authentication from app\Providers\JetStreamServiceProvider.php, on boot method :

use App\Models\User;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Laravel\Fortify\Fortify;

public function boot()

    // Below code is for your customization
    Fortify::authenticateUsing(function (Request $request) {
        $user = User::where('email', $request->email)->first();

        if ($user->status == 1) {  // it will return if status == 1
            return $user;

See the official Jetstream documentation of Customizing User Authentication
