I’m trying to figure out how to have a two level user relationship.
Photographers have clients. Clients have one photographer. Both are
So I’ve got a User model that looks like this:
class User < ActiveRecord::Base
has_many :client_associations, :foreign_key =>
‘client_id’, :class_name => ‘Association’, :dependent => :destroy
has_many :clients, :through => :client_associations
has_many :photographer_associations, :foreign_key =>
‘photographer_id’, :class_name => ‘Association’, :dependent
has_one :photographer, :through => :photographer_associations
User.find_by_login(login) || User.find_by_email(login)
And an Association model that looks like:
class Association < ActiveRecord::Base
belongs_to :client, :class_name => ‘User’
belongs_to :photographer, :class_name => ‘User’
When I fill it with some data and fire up the console, running
user.clients.all or user.photographer just gives me an empty array.
What am I doing wrong?
