namespace App\Http\Requests;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Http\FormRequest;
class FooRequest extends FormRequest
public function authorize()

protected function failedValidation(Validator $validator)
$validationErrors = $this->validator->errors();
$errors = [];
foreach ($validationErrors->toArray() as $key => $value) {
