Laravel: How to exclude URLs from the Laravel CSRF protection?

Sometimes you have to disable the CSRF protection. A common reason for this is because you have an incoming API webhook.

You can exclude URLs from the CSRF middleware by editing app/Http/Middleware/VerifyCsrfToken.

Edit the $except property.

  1. protected $except = [
  2.   "incoming/api/*",
  3. ];
