A New Validation Rule and the Ability to Manually Fail a Command in Laravel 11.8

This week, the Laravel team released v11.8, with a new validation rule, the ability to fail a command outside the handle() method, create a view during make:mail, and more.

Show Events in the model:show Command

Wendell Adriel contributed an Events section to the model:show command that displays any evens defined on the $dispatchesEvents property:

New has Validation Rule

Andrew Brown contributed a has validation rule that checks to make sure expected values are included in the given array of input:

return [
    'allowed_ips'   => ['present', 'nullable', 'array', 'has:' . $request->ip()],
    'allowed_ips.*' => ['required', 'ip'],

In the PR's description, this example ensures that the user's IP is in the allowed_ips array. You can also pass multiple parameters, which would require that all parameters are present in the array of data. See Pull Request #51348 for more details.

Ability to Manually Fail a Command

Len Woodward contributed the ability to manually fail an Artisan command outside of the handle() method. Like the Queue's $this->fail() convenience method, commands can now manually fail a job:

public function handle()

protected function trigger_failure()

See Pull Request #51435 for implementation details and examples of how this method could be useful over a few other existing approaches to failing early in a command.

Create a Blade View With make:mail

Ryan Chandler contributed a --view flag to the make:mail command that will create an empty Blade file and configure the created Mailable to use it by default. It works the same way as the existing --markdown option and saves the manual step of creating and wiring up a Blade mail template.

php artisan make:mail OrderShipped --view=mail.orders.shipped
