Use of Laravel Notification

We use different channels for instant notifications to find out bugs or different errors on a local or live server in Laravel, Notification channels help to solve problems instantly for developers.

Sending messages using Incoming Webhooks Laravel

Incoming Webhooks are a simple way to post messages from apps into Slack, Creating an Incoming Webhook gives you a unique URL to which you send a JSON payload with the message text and some options.

We will use the Slack notification channel in Laravel for Error Handling in the given below example:-

Create a Slack app (if you don’t have one already)

Pick a name, choose a workspace to associate your app with (bearing in mind that you’ll probably be posting lots of text messages, so you might want to create a channel for sandbox use), and then click Create App.

Create a Workspace for notification:-

Create a Channel and make it private for our personal use:-

We successfully created a workspace with a channel, now follow the next step.

Create an App to Generate Notification

https://api.slack.com/messaging/webhooks

Testing a Error Notification (Throw an Error)

app\Exceptions\Handler.php

In the Handler.php file, we trace error, the file name, and line or code.

<?php

namespace App\Exceptions;

use Illuminate\Foundation\Exceptions\Handler as ExceptionHandler;
use Throwable;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Log;

class Handler extends ExceptionHandler
{
    
    public function register()
    {
        $this->reportable(function (Throwable $e) {
            $errorLog =collect([
                'file'=>$e->getFile(),
                'line'=>$e->getLine(),
                'code'=>$e->getCode(),
            ])->concat(collect($e->getTrace()))->take(5)->toArray();
           Log::channel('slack')->error($e->getMessage(),$errorLog);
        });
    }
}

routes\web.php

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
use App\Http\Controllers\TestNotificationExampleController;

/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Web Routes
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These
| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which
| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!
|
*/
#Slack webhook example
Route::get('/contact',[TestNotificationExample::class, 'create']);

app\Http\Controllers\TestNotificationExampleController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Session;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Log;

class TestNotificationExampleController extends Controller
{
    public function create(){

        $testerror = $test_undefined_variable_example;
        //return view('contact');
    }
}

Don’t forget to import:-

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Log;

Run your Application :
