How to use Laravel Passport with a custom username column

Now I'm using something like that for authenticating the user on my base site:

if (Auth::attempt($request->only(['id', 'password']))) {

How can I modify this code for using custom column as username?

You can use findForPassport method in your user model.

This method take username as argument, and return user model

For example:

class User extends Authenticatable
    use HasApiTokens, Notifiable;

    // ... some code

    public function findForPassport($username) {
        return $this->where('id', $username)->first();
