The Packages panel simplifies the process of managing your Composer credentials. Now, when you need to deploy your project that depends on a package such as Laravel Nova, Laravel Spark, or Spatie’s Media Library Pro, you can add your package authentication credentials without ever needing to manually modify your server’s
auth.json configuration file.
To improve the security and privacy of your tokens, Forge loads the configuration on-demand directly from your server. This means that no credential data is stored by Forge.
If you don’t have a Forge account, now is a great time to sign up! Forge allows you to painlessly create and manage PHP servers which include MySQL, Redis, Memcached, database backups, and everything else you need to run robust, modern Laravel applications.
