Lumen - Class Url Does Not Exist

- 1 answer

I am using Lumen to create a website, and while my controllers, routes, and views are well configured, I get an error when I try to use the redirect function in a controller.

This is the error code :

ReflectionException in Container.php line 736: Class url does not exist

My route is well recognized, (you can see it transformed as it should in the error).

Here is the code that I use in my controller :

public function unarchive($attribute){
    return redirect(route('token.archived'));

I also uncommented the following from boostrap/app.php :


Is there a problem using the function redirect() with Lumen ? I tried both redirect(route()) and redirect()->route(), and they gave the same result.



If you are on 5.2 there is an issue open for this.

Lumen - Github Issues - redirect() doesn't work, Lumen 5.2 #315

You can use the Illuminate\Http\RedirectResponse directly if needed. (from workaround link below):

return new RedirectResponse('login');
return RedirectResponse::create('login');

Possible workaround from Github Issue
