Adding User Context Not Working

I am using with Laravel and trying to add user content via a middleware. I have followed the direction on github and mocked an error and no user content was sent.

Here is my middleware:


namespace App\Http\Middleware;

use Closure;

class SentryContext
     * Handle an incoming request.
     * @param  \Illuminate\Http\Request  $request
     * @param  \Closure  $next
     * @return mixed
    public function handle($request, Closure $next)
        if (app()->bound('sentry')) {
            /** @var \Raven_Client $sentry */
            $sentry = app('sentry');
            'firstname' => $request->firstname,
            'lastname'  => $request->lastname,
        return $next($request);

Any thoughts on what I may be doing wrong?

User context actually requires some form of unique identifier, and while we could fill in IP address for you, we dont once you set it yourself.

  'id' => $request->user_id,
  'firstname' => '...'

See the docs for more details on what the options are for an identifier:
