Increment a Rate Limiter by a Custom Amount in Laravel 10.46 image

The Laravel team released v10.46 this week with new Enum validation methods, incrementing a rate limiter by a custom amount, Conditionable Enum validation rules, and more:

Enum Validation gets only() and except() methods

@Anton5360 contributed two new methods to the Enum validation rule when you don’t expect all enum cases to be valid:

Rule::enum(ServerStatus::class)
->only([ServerStatus::Pending, ServerStatus::Active]);
 
Rule::enum(ServerStatus::class)
->except([ServerStatus::New]);

A status enum is a perfect example of where these methods might be practical: after a record status moves away from New, you’ll likely not want to allow a record to return to that status again. Another example from the pull request description is once a shipment status is shipped, you’ll only allow delivered, cancelled, or rejected.

Rate limiter may be incremented by a custom amount

Sebastien Armand contributed the ability to increment a rate limit value by a custom amount:

Sometimes a rate limit doesn't map directly to an increase of 1 at a time. Some examples would be:

  • a limit on bandwidth used
  • a limit on # of updates across batch calls where each call could mean multiple "hits"
  • a limit on time spent on some operations

Here’s an example of how you can use the increment() method to increase the total by a custom amount:

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\RateLimiter;
 
RateLimiter::increment('send-message:'.$user->id, amount: 5);

See Manually Incrementing Attempts in the documentation for details.

Conditionable added to the Enum rule

Michael Nabil contributed the ability to use the Conditionable trait with the Rule::enum() validation rule:

Rule::enum(PostStatus::class)
->when(
auth()->user()->is_admin,
fn ($rule) => $rule->only([PostStatus::APPROVED]),
fn ($rule) => $rule->only([PostStatus::PADDING]),
);
