user as admin

The easiest way is probably to just have a boolean “is_admin” field on
the
user model.

Really depends on your other requirements though.

Have you created two different models, one for admin and one for user?
Or are you using an authorization scheme where you give individual users
(all the same model) different roles?

It’s there on the wiki

ya, I used the same link for for creating admin role, but now i want
to make user to act as another admin

I am using different models for user and admin

I followed to create admin and users roles in the following links

https://github.com/plataformatec/devise/wiki/How-To:-Add-an-Admin-role
https://github.com/plataformatec/devise

I used different models for admin and user
But now i want to make the some users to act as admin, please tell me
the process of making a user as admin

The great way to use Devise , for me, it’s t couple it with the Gem
CANCAN
to manage capabilities. Then

you just have to make a migration to add different ‘role’ to the
user(with
devise) like ‘ADMIN’, ‘COMMON’,or ‘VISITOR’.

Checkout the Readme.md of the gem Cancan on these suitable links:

video tuts of Ryanb Baytes :

The gem on Github: https://github.com/ryanb/cancan

I hope this will help you.

Good luck :wink:
