How to use different key than :id in route?

Okay, so I’m trying to have a URL like the following (which uses a key
generated at random):

societies/6b241c631c6beaa89c889b9fb388caef9f617900ca1eff
societies/6b241c631c6beaa89c889b9fb388caef9f617900ca1eff/edit

Where do I change the default behavior from using the ID, to another
value of that object?

Did you try this in routes -

map.connect ‘societies/:something/edit’, :action=>‘aaa’,
:controller=>‘ccc’

  • example. societies/:rkey/edit

You can overwrite to_param to return the random thing and use
find_by_random_thing params[:id] in your controller actions

I’d like to avoid rewriting routes (I mean, I can do
map.resources :societies)

I’ll try the to_params, that one slipped my mind.
