While writing this method I needed it to return to the profile page of a user after successfully creating that user account. I don't know if I am doing it the correct way but one obvious way I thought is to return the browser a URL with the query parameter that uniquely identifies the user and pass in the new user's identity.

Then, in the voluminous documentation of Laravel 9, I tried to find how to do it. So far, the best options are:

$url = "{$value}";

return redirect($link);

Using a named route:

return redirect()->route('route_name',['key'=> $value]);
