We need to create global.php config file with constants variable value and you can also define array value like as bellow:

config/global.php

<?php
   
return [
  
    'pagination_records' => 10,
  
    'user_type' => ['User', 'Admin'],
]
  
?> 

Use Global Variable

You can easily get value using config() helper. you can see bellow example:

routes/web.php

Route::get('get-user-type', function()
{
    dd(config('global.user_type'));
}); 
Route::get('get-user-type', function()
{
    dd(config('global.pagination_records'));
}); 

I hope it can help you….
