Problem with mass asignment

Hi everyone. I’m new in ruby and recently faced with mass assignment
problem. Below I attached a sample code similar to mine. Could you
explain me what should I use in require method??? is it a name of
model(person) or a variable name which I assign result(person =
current_account.people.find(params[:id])) or maybe it should be an
object attribute like @person??? Because I used various types but always
have the same error.
The second question - is it necessary to give the same name for private
method def person_params as the name of (person_params) for db update?
thx

class PeopleController < ActionController::Base

def update
person = current_account.people.find(params[:id])
person.update_attributes!(person_params)
redirect_to person
end

private

def person_params
  params.require(:person).permit(:name, :age)
end

end

Normally it is the name of the model, as in the example shown.
If you can’t get that to work show us some code (just the relevant
bits, should not need more than a dozen lines or so) and the error you
are getting.

def contact
if params.present?
item_params = params[:data]
item = Page.create(item_params)
end
render ‘index/contact’
end

private

  def item_params
    params.require(:item).permit(:name,:description)
  end

I attached photo with error

it is the name of a key in the params hash (check your development.log
to
see what params you are receiving). In your example below you are
checking
that the params hash contains a key “person” (an error will be raised if
not) and that value is a hash where the keys name and age are permitted.
If
you use the standard rails methods for building your form (i.e. form_for
and f.text_field etc rather than text_field_tag) then rails uses the
name
of the model class so the argument to require will also be the name of
the
class

The second question - is it necessary to give the same name for private
method def person_params as the name of (person_params) for db update?

not quite sure what you mean by that.

Thank you very much. Now it is clear
