Laravel - Session - Flash Data

Sometimes you may wish to store items in the session for the next request. You may do so using the flash method. Data stored in the session using this method will be available immediately and during the subsequent HTTP request. After the subsequent HTTP request, the flashed data will be deleted. Flash data is primarily useful for short-lived status messages:

    
    $request->session()->flash('status', 'Task was successful!');
	

If you need to persist your flash data for several requests, you may use the reflash method, which will keep all of the flash data for an additional request. If you only need to keep specific flash data, you may use the keep method:

    
    $request->session()->reflash();
    
    $request->session()->keep(['username', 'email']);
	

To persist your flash data only for the current request, you may use the now method:

    
    $request->session()->now('status', 'Task was successful!');
