How to use find method on table with two column index

I created an index with person_id and club_id but I can’t figure out
how to properly access it (doesn’t show up in the find_by… lists)

Can someone provide me a sample find statement to best use this index

Thanks.

class CreateMembers < ActiveRecord::Migration
def self.up
create_table :members do |t|
t.integer :club_id
t.integer :person_id
t.text :comment
t.string :status
t.string :member_type
t.integer :registrations_count

  t.timestamps
end

add_index :members, :club_id
add_index :members, :person_id
add_index :members, [:person_id, :club_id]

end

def self.down
drop_table :members
end
end

You don’t need to do anything explicitly - just find :all, :conditions
=> … will use the index if needed (you may have been looking for
find_by_xxx_and_yyy though)
The index on person_id is usually superfluous - when you have a
multicolumn index then any left prefix of that index is also an index
ie the index on [:person_id, :club_id] can be used as an index on just
person_id

Hi there

What you are trying to find is (I think it’s the easiest option )

class CreateListSongs < ActiveRecord::Migration
def self.up
create_table :members, :primary_key =>[:club_id, :person_id] do |t|
t.integer :club_id
t.integer :person_id
t.text :comment
t.string :status
t.string :member_type
t.integer :registrations_count
t.timestamps

end

end

def self.down
drop_table :members
end
end

Hope this helps

Best regards

Miquel
