    When it comes to validation in Laravel. Developers often refer to using separate Requests to achieve it. Now for creating and updating, rules might get a little bit tricky. But we’ve got you covered.

    Follow the simple snippet below in your Laravel Requests.

    Snippet

    public function rules() {
       switch ( $this->method() ) {
          case 'GET':
          case 'DELETE': {
             return [];
          }
          case 'POST': {
             return [
                'first_name'   => 'required',
                'last_name'    => 'required',
                'company_name' => 'required',
                'email'        => 'required|unique:users,email'
             ];
          }
          case 'PUT':
          case 'PATCH': {
             return [
                'first_name'   => 'required',
                'last_name'    => 'required',
                'company_name' => 'required',
                'email'        => 'required|unique:users,email,' . $this->route()->parameters['id']
             ];
    
          }
          default:
             break;
       }
    }

    You may also do something like this for specifying for response messages as well.
