Devise with Rails 3

Hi All,

Im using devise with rails 3.

My requirement in this is,

There are two scenarios.

  1. User send reset password for their email id.

  2. Admin send reset password for the user mail id, where the user is not
    active. When this scenario is generated, the reset instruction mail
    should be delivered to the admin email id and not to the actual user
    mail id.

This is tricky but this is what my requirement is.

Can this be done in devise?
Or is there any other possibilities?

Can anyone share your thoughts on this?

Regards,

Since you asked for our thoughts… mine are that this requirement
doesn’t make much sense. The only reason I can think of for doing
this, is that what the customer (the person asking you to write the
app, not the user of the app) really wants, is for the admin to have
some way to set a user’s password. The requirement is poorly written,
dictating how something will be done, not just what is to be done.

If it’s absolutely necessary that there be an email, such as for an
audit trail, that can be done by adding that to the admin’s password
reset feature.

Devise does have the capability to override the default controllers
(there
is an example of this in the Devise readme.) One approach would be to
override the controller that handles the password email notifications
with
your own customized controller. In your new controller, it should be
simple to check the user activity state and set the destination email
address to the user or the admin as required.

I switched out a controller a while back to get some customized control,
and it was pretty straight forward, except for getting the routes right.
I’m not good with Rails routing so that took a while.
