I actually did stub Order.find() but was getting a nil object error
because params[:ids] was nil. I can’t write
controller.download :ids => ‘1/2/3’
in the controller spec, and
get download, :ids => ids_string
results in the following error message:
NameError in ‘Admin::OrdersController should split the params[:ids]
string to create an array of id’s to find for downloading’
undefined local variable or method `download’ for [RSpec

Why would you want to set params[:ids] to a mock? params values are
always basically strings (or hashes/arrays of strings) and you can set
them in the actual action call:
get :foo, :ids => [1,2,3]
Moreover, in your case Order.find should be the thing you want to
stub. You don’t want the finder call to go to the database, since
you’re speccing the controller behaviour here, not business logic.
