Next, use the LaratrustUserTrait trait in your existing User model. For example:


use Laratrust\Traits\LaratrustUserTrait;

class User extends Model
   use LaratrustUserTrait; // add this trait to your user model


This will enable the relation with Role and add the following methods roles(), hasRole($name), can($permission), and ability($roles, $permissions, $options) within your User model.

Do not forget to dump composer autoload:

composer dump-autoload


At this point you are ready to go
