In order to proceed you should have:

- you have follow this tutorial (you have tags table created and migration has run)

# STEP 1. Create crud

php artisan backpack:crud tag

After this command has run the output is

Artisan has created for us

  • model
  • controller
  • request
  • registered the route in the routes
  • updated the view with the new icon

# STEP 2. Alter requests file

Open TagRequest.php located in app/Http/Requests folder

Edit the rules method by adding extra validations.

* Get the validation rules that apply to the request.
* @return array
public function rules()
return [
'name' => 'required|min:5|max:255',
'slug' => 'required|min:5|max:255'

List of all available rules in Laravel could be found here.

In our case we are adding a requirement for name and slug to be mandatory.

Well, we are ready. It is that easy.
