Rule::array() and whereJsonOverlaps() for MySQL in Laravel 11.7 image

This week, the Laravel team released v11.7, with a Rule::array() validation method, a whereJsonOverlaps() method for MySQL, a Slack OpenID provider for Laravel Socialite, and more.

Introduce the Rule::array() Method

Jakub Potocký contributed the Rule::array() method used to validate multiple array keys using the array validation rule. This method enables using this rule with arrays and collections without having the concatenate dynamic values:

use Illuminate\Validation\Rule;
 
// Before
['array:' . MyBackedEnum::VALUE->value . ',' . MyBackedEnum::VALUE_2->value];
 
// After examples
Rule::array('key_1', 'key_2', 'key_3');
Rule::array(['key_1', 'key_2', 'key_3']);
Rule::array(collect(['key_1', 'key_2', 'key_3']));
Rule::array([UnitEnum::key_1, UnitEnum::key_2, UnitEnum::key_3]);
Rule::array([BackedEnum::key_1, BackedEnum::key_2, BackedEnum::key_3]);

See Pull Request #51250 for full details.

Stringable Support in blank() and filled() Helpers

Stefan R. contributed support for Stringable values in the blank() and filled() helpers:

// true
filled(str('FooBar '));
 
// true
blank(str(' '));

Add "whereJsonOverlaps()" for MySQL

Benjamin Ayles contributed support for MySQL's json_overlaps feature that compares two JSON documents:

User::whereJsonOverlaps('languages', ['en', 'fr'])->exists();
User::whereJsonDoesntOverlap('languages', ['en', 'fr'])->exists();

See Pull Request #51288 for more details and discussion.

Add PasswordResetLinkSent Event

Matt Jones contributed a new event called PasswordResetLinkSent which fires when a password reset link is sent. See Pull Request #51253 for more details.

Laravel Socialite Provider for Slack OpenID

Maarten Paauw contributed a separate Slack OpenID provider for Laravel Socialite. See Pull Request #704 for details and links to the Slack documentation.
