Unpermitted Parameters 500 error

I have some models with lots of deeply nested attributes.

Before when I saved these models using update_attributes, I had no
problems, but I recently updated to Rails 4 and started using strong
parameters. Now I’m getting a found unpermitted parameters error.

attr_accessible simply ignored parameters not permitted for
mass-assignment and saved the others, but I guess strong parameters
works
differently?

Is there any way to make Rails simply ignore the unpermitted parameters
and
just update the parameters that are permitted?

Removing all the unpermitted params from my model would be a huge pain.

You can control what happens to unpermitted parameters with the
config.action_controller.action_on_unpermitted_parameters
setting (can be :raise or :log). Personally I live it on :raise - I’ve
wasted a lot of time in the past tracking down updates silently ignoring
attributes.
