Rspec doesn't skip_filter?

I’m using devise and in application_controller I have before_filter
:authenticate!
In sector_controller I have:

skip_filter :authenticate_user!, :only => [:index,
:search_categories_by_sector]

When I run rspec it says: undefined method authenticate!, even for
index action.
But I’ set skip_filter for index action.
Why rspec needs authenticate for index?

Because you have specified skip for :authenticate_user! not :authenticate! ?

I’ve make a mistake writing, in application_controller I have:
before_filter :authenticate_user!

In that case, as you are getting an error ‘undefined method
authenticate!’ that is nothing to do with the filter.

It is no good re-typing what you think you have when asking questions,
it is vital that we know exactly what you have.
I suggest that you copy and paste the relevant code out of
application_controller.rb and sector_controller.rb and also copy and
paste the test that is failing and the error.

That’ right.
application_controller.rb

class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base
before_filter :authenticate_user!
rescue_from DeviseLdapAuthenticatable::LdapException do |exception|
render :text => exception, :status => 500
end

suppliers_controller.rb

class SuppliersController < InheritedResources::Base
skip_filter :authenticate_user!, :only => [:index,
:search_categories_by_sector]
before_filter :load_sectors_and_categories, :except =>
:search_categories_by_sector

respond_to :js

def index
set_title(“Albo Fornitori - Ricerca”, “Albo Fornitori”)
@search = Supplier.search(params[:search])
@suppliers =
@search.page(params[:page]).per(Settings.suppliers_per_page)
end

private
def search_categories_by_sector
unless params[:sector_id].blank?
@categories = Category.find_all_by_sector_id(params[:sector_id])
render :layout => false
else
@categories = Category.all
render :layout => false
end
end

def set_title(title1, title2)
@titleBox1 = title1
@titleBox2 = title2
end

def load_sectors_and_categories
@sectors = Sector.all
@categories = Category.all
end
end

suppliers_controller_spec.rb

describe SuppliersController do

This should return the minimal set of attributes required to create

a valid

Supplier. As you add validations to Supplier, be sure to

update the return value of this method accordingly.

before :each do
@category = Category.make!
end

def valid_attributes
{ :company_name => ‘Supplier-1’, :vat_number => ‘12345678901’,
:address => ‘addres-1’, :city => ‘city-1’,
:prov => ‘prov-1’, :zip_code => ‘12345’, :inps => ‘inps-1’,
:inail => ‘inail-1’, :email => ‘[email protected]’,
:categories => [@category] }
end

def mock_supplier(stubs={})
@mock_supplier ||= mock_model(Supplier, stubs).as_null_object
end

describe “GET index” do
it “assigns all suppliers as @suppliers” do
sectors = Sector.all
categories = Category.all
supplier = Supplier.create! valid_attributes
get :index
assigns(:suppliers).should eq([supplier])
assigns(:sectors).should eq(sectors)
assigns(:categories).should eq(categories)
end
end

the error is:

  1. SuppliersController GET index assigns all suppliers as @suppliers
    Failure/Error: get :index
    NoMethodError:
    undefined method `authenticate!’ for nil:NilClass

What to you use to authenticate?

… Could it
be due to the fact that you are using InheritedResources?

I think so, I’ll do more testing.

Don’t you get a trace showing where the error occurred?

I haven’t used Devise though so someone else may be better able to
help now that we have determined exactly what is happening. Could it
be due to the fact that you are using InheritedResources?
