Update_attributes


#1

Is there a way to find out why an update_attributes command returned
false? After upgrade to 0.14.3, one of my update_attributes commands is
no longer working, but I don’t know of any way to find out why.

Try to repeat the command in script/console and see what the object’s
errors attribute contains. update_attributes returns false if the
validations fail.

Thanks for the help Bill. So to be clear, validation rules apply on
update_attributes even if there attributes are NOT included in the
update_attributes to be changed. Is that because the update actually
calls to update all the information?

Thanks again!
