I have a two tables in my DB: users and products and I tried to set up a foreign key relationship between the id field in user and a user_id field in product. Despite redoing my scaffold the user_id does not show up when I go to create a new user. Is that normal? More importantly, how can I save the user id of the logged in user to the user_id field in my product table? Currently my create code looks like this: def create warn @user.id @product = Product.new(params[:product]) @product.id = @user.id if @product.save flash[:notice] = 'Product was successfully created.' redirect_to :action => 'list' else render :action => 'new' end end PS: @warn.id is shows the correct ID of the logged in user so at least that works..

Ok, solved it. Dumb mistake. Needed to add this: @product.user_id = @user.id

You should also be able to say: @product.user = @user Which is more idiomatic rails. -- -- Tom M.
