I have a few forms that adds information to a database, and one of the
fields is “user_id” This field relates the stored information (in this
case a “route”) with the user who entered it.
I have a few questions.
First, is the controller the best place to set the user_id? Right now I
@route = Route.new
@route.user_id = session[:user].id
Should this go in the model instead?
I tried this but I get an error for using session[:user].id: “undefined
local variable or method `session’ for #”
Also, is there a check I can put in the model to make sure that no entry
is edited with a user id different than the current user.
errors.add(:user_id, “This is not your route!”) unless :user_id ==
But I still get the error “undefined local variable or method `session’
Thanks in advance,
