Includes (eager loads) of associations that includes joins fails

When an association has joins (either to filter the association or
calculate something), it cannot be eager loaded with includes. The
*command seems to be omitted and I get an error saying the table doesn’t
exist cause it didn’t the join when eager loading.


class User < ActiveRecord::Base
has_many :purchases

Perform joins and attach some calculations to the User object

scope :add_stats, -> {
SUM(purchases.price) AS total_purchases”) }end
class Purchase < ActiveRecord::Base
belongs_to :userend

The add_stats scope represents heavy calculations attached to the User
So if I want to get all User objects with stats, I just write

So far so good. Now I want to fetch some Purchase objects and eager load
the Users with stats as well. I’ve tried this:

belongs_to :user, -> { add_stats }

But then when Rails eager load the users, it seems to remove
.group(“”).joins(:purchases) and complain on purchases.price -
“purchases table unknown”. So the .select() is the only thing preserved
from the scope.

How do I apply a scope (with working .group().joins()) to the eager
query of all included belongs_to :user objects?
