Laravel Error in Logs Doesn’t Tell Me What I Need to Fix

I’m getting an error in my Laravel logs almost everyday, but the error message doesn’t tell me which one of my views or controllers is causing the error. It’s a FormRequest.php error, so I know it’s a form validation error. The problem is my site has hundreds of forms so I don’t know exactly which script I need to fix to make the error go away.

This is the exact error I’m getting. As you can see, the stack trace only mentions vendor files. It doesn’t list any of my own scripts or give any suggestions as to what to fix.

Please note: I’m not asking for a solution for how to fix “Argument 2 passed to IlluminateValidationFactory::make() must be of the type array, null given.” I’m asking for where the error in my code is so I can fix it.

Method 1

I guess somewhere in your app you are using FormRequest and rules() method return a null.

/**
 * Get the validation rules that apply to the request.
 *
 * @return array
 */
public function rules()
{
    return [
        // your validation rules
    ];
}

The rules method needs to return an array.
