Validating Object Without Saving It


#1

Is their a way to validate an object without saving it?

So I can do something like this

if user.save

else

end

But where save is just validating it but not actually saving it into
DB. I just don’t want to save the object yet.

Thanks guys and gals :slight_smile:
