Help in Stubing is_admin? method

My controller

def edit
@user = User.find(get_param(:id, :integer))
@user = current_user if !is_admin?
end


My spec
describe “GET edit” do
##############################################################
should_require_login :get, :edit

##############################################################
describe "authenticated user" do
  ##############################################################
  before(:each) do
    login_as_user
    @user = mock_model(User)
    User.stub!(:find).and_return(@user)
    controller.stub!(:is_admin?).and_return(false)
  end

  ##############################################################
  def do_get
    get :edit, :id => 1
  end

  ##############################################################
  it "should find user and return object" do
    User.should_receive(:find).with(1).and_return(@user)

    get :edit, :id => 1
    assigns[:user].should == @user
  end
end

end


The error

‘UsersController GET edit authenticated user should find user and return
object’ FAILED
expected: #<User:0x10cbaec @name=“User_1016”>,
got: #<User:0x10cf228 @name=“User_1015”> (using ==)


I know I am stubbing the is_admin? method in a wrong way.
Can anyone help me?

Thank you
EM

Hi Elza

Am I right thinking your intent here is the same as:

def edit
@user = if is_admin?
User.find(get_param(:id, :integer))
else
current_user
end
end

If so, a hit to /users/5 would edit user 5 if you were an admin user,
but would always edit the logged in user otherwise. Since you have

should_require_login :get, :edit

as part of the spec, that’d mean you could never be in the latter
situation.

Sorry if this is missing the point (I’ve had a long day, may have
misread your code…), but I thought I’d better establish your intent
before posting an irrelevant reply about the expectation error.

Elza,

Copying this back in to the main list as it is more valuable to
discuss it there.

Can you please confirm that you are not confusing the concept of
“logged in user” and “user to be edited with the Users controller”?
That is what appears to be happening to me.
