Does Rails 4.2 use secret_token?

I also posted this on

Are both secret_key_base and secret_token needed for production in Rails
4.2? Setting neither causes the following exception message:

Missing secret_token and secret_key_base for ‘production’ environment,
these values in config/secrets.yml

The 4.2 upgrade guide (Updating to Rails 5.0 · RailsApps)

When you create a new Rails application using the rails new command, a
unique secret key is generated and written to the
config/initializers/secret_token.rb file.

But no such file was created when I generated my app, and there is no
reference to secret_token in config/secrets.yml

I’m assuming that the error message is wrong, and that only

with just secret_key_base, but in Engineyard, setting secret_key_base
an environment variable) isn’t working. I still get the error.
