How to Resolve 419 Errors in Laravel when calling Ajax

Learn how to resolve 419 errors in Laravel when calling Ajax to retrieve the data from the API route. Get to know how to specify CSRF token before sending the Ajax request.

You might come across 419 errors in Laravel when calling Ajax and this is highly likely caused by missing CSRF token.

Laravel Specify CSRF token in Header

To solve this issue you can specify the CSRF token before performing the ajax. You can specify the CSRF token using the X-CSRF-TOKEN header and then pass the token itself using the "csrf_token()" helper function.
    headers: {
        'X-CSRF-TOKEN': $('meta[name="csrf-token"]').attr('content')
The code example above is the setup for jQuery but it's pretty much the same for any other HTTP request library. If you are using Axios HTTP library then you can refer to the code below.
window.axios = require('axios');

window.axios.defaults.headers.common['X-Requested-With'] = 'XMLHttpRequest';
Do note that in order for it to work you will need the "meta" tag with the "csrf-token" as its name and the content itself injected through Laravel Blade.
<meta name="csrf-token" content="{{ csrf_token() }}">
