How do I only show items that belong to a certain user?


#1

I have a web application with users and their documents. Each user can
have many documents:

user.rb:

has_many :documents

document.rb:

belongs_to :user

document_controller.rb:

def index
@documents = Document.find(:all)
end

I am using the restful_authentication plugin. Here is my question: How
do I get the controller to only show documents that belongs to each
user? Right now it shows all the documents for all the users.

I am using the latest version of Rails.


#2

@current_user.documents rather Document.find(:all).

Oh, I should say that I’m not sure what the actual user variable is when
using restful_authentication, but that is the concept you want to go
for.
Cheers,
Walter


#4

@user.documents
