Laravel 6: named routes inside a folder doesn’t get the user object

I’m having a UsersController in this path app/Http/Controllers/Admin with the default edit function

public function edit(User $user)

and this route
Route::namespace('Admin')->group(function (){
   Route::get('adminUsers', '<a href="" class="__cf_email__" data-cfemail="a7f2d4c2d5d4e4c8c9d3d5c8cbcbc2d5e7cec9c3c2df">[email protected]</a>')->name('adminUsers');
   Route::get('adminEditUser/{id}', '<a href="" class="__cf_email__" data-cfemail="613412041312220e0f15130e0d0d04132104050815">[email protected]</a>')->name('adminEditUser');
   Route::get('adminDeleteUser/{id}', '<a href="" class="__cf_email__" data-cfemail="82d7f1e7f0f1c1edecf6f0edeeeee7f0c2e6e7eee7f6e7">[email protected]</a>')->name('adminDeleteUser');


enter image description here

So all controllers get the “Admin” folder name before it instead of adding it for every controller. Now I have this view

@foreach($users as $user)
          <td>{{ $user->name }}</td>
          <td>{{ $user->email }}</td>
          <td><a href="{{ route('adminEditUser', $user->id) }}" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" class="btn btn-sm btn-primary">Edit</a>
              <a href="{{ route('adminDeleteUser', $user->id) }}" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" class="btn btn-sm btn-primary">Delete</a></td>

The edit link opens this url

And the $user object doesn’t have any user data (user with id 1 already exists)
AppUser {#1419 ▼
#fillable: array:3 [▶]
#hidden: array:2 [▶]
#casts: array:1 [▶]
#connection: null
#table: null
#primaryKey: "id"
#keyType: "int"
+incrementing: true
#with: []
#withCount: []
#perPage: 15
+exists: false
+wasRecentlyCreated: false
#attributes: []
#original: []
#changes: []

#dispatchesEvents: []
#observables: []
#relations: []
#touches: []
+timestamps: true
#visible: []
#guarded: array:1 [▶]
#rememberTokenName: "remember_token"

Why is that and how to solve this?

Method 1

Your route parameter is named id not user. The parameter name has to match what you are type hinting for the Implicit Route Model Binding to work.

Route::get('adminEditUser/{user}', '<a href="" class="__cf_email__" data-cfemail="fbae889e8988b894958f899497979e89bb9e9f928f">[email protected]</a>')->name('adminEditUser');

Now it will match the method signature you have:
public function edit(User $user)

In your case you were just getting Dependency Injection of a new User object instead of any Model Binding happening.

“Laravel automatically resolves Eloquent models defined in routes or controller actions whose type-hinted variable names match a route segment name.”
