It is pretty easy to make primary keys a guid value by:
class CreateAccounts < ActiveRecord::Migration
create_table(:accounts, :primary_key => :guid) do |t|
But I am unsure how to create the foreign key constraints to allow them
to accept the guid values. Setting the column type fails (t.guid
:account_id), as it seems that guid an undefined method.
Setting the relational column to a string also causes a failure when
creating the foreign key constraints.
Does anyone have any experience with this?
I see there is a plugin here, but I don’t know if this will fix the
issue with the foreign keys.
Thanks for the help
