Help with routes and auto-generated methods

I am getting the following error when trying to link to an
auto-generated route:

—>
NoMethodError in Entities#index

Showing entities/index.html.erb where line #36 raised:

undefined method `edit_entity_client’ for #ActionView::Base:0x49ea3c8

Extracted source (around line #36):

33: <%- if entity.client.nil? -%>
34: <%= link_to ‘Add Client Role’, new_entity_client(entity)

35: <%- else -%>

edit_entity_client(entity) -%>

None

The routes.rb file contains this:

map.resources :entities do |entity|
# An entity can only have one client role
entity.resource :client
entity.resources :locations
# And only one vendor role
entity.resource :vendor
end

and the link_to targets, new_entity_client and edit_entity_client, both
show up when I perform a rake routes:

rake routes


new_entity_client GET /entities/:entity_id/client/new
{:controller=>“clients”, :action=>“new”}
formatted_new_entity_client GET
/entities/:entity_id/client/new.:format
{:controller=>“clients”, :action=>“new”}
edit_entity_client GET /entities/:entity_id/client/edit
{:controller=>“clients”, :action=>“edit”}
formatted_edit_entity_client GET
/entities/:entity_id/client/edit.:format
{:controller=>“clients”, :action=>“edit”}

But I nonetheless get the error above. My question is why is the method
edit_entity_client missing? What am I doing wrong?

I am leaving off the trailing _path/_url suffix, that is what. The
correct method call is edit_entity_client_path(entity)
