What is that get in routes?

I’ve create a operator_session_controller:

class OperatorSessionsController < ApplicationController

def destroy
reset_session
redirect_to ‘https://…’
end

end

I’ve put resource :operator_session in routes.rb.
It’s all ok.
Suddenly I see in routes.rb the line:

get “operator_session/destroy”

It was automatically put on.
What does it mean?

Can you please post the entire content of routes.rb. And what is your
rails version and any other routes based plugins are installed in your
application?

The routes.rb is:

Sacchetti::Application.routes.draw do
get “operator_session/destroy”

resources :bags

resources :admins

resources :districts

resources :operators do
resources :deliveries
end

resources :rusers do
resources :deliveries
resources :doc_details
resources :delegates
end

resource :operator_session

match ‘:controller(/:action(/:id(.:format)))’
end

I don’t understand that get “operator_session/destroy”.

Yes but I just have resource :operator_session in my routes.rb.
My question is: why rails put automatically that get
“operator_session/destroy”?

It just means that it’s a GET request from your browser as opposed to
POST, PUT, or DELETE http methods. For example: GET would be used when
you want to simply load a page, POST would be used if you wanted to
submit a form.

This is all pretty well documented in the rails guides:
http://guides.rubyonrails.org/routing.html

Luke

What command line did you use to generate it ? If you specify only one
action I think it assumes that it’s a GET request even though destroy
would usually correspond with a DELETE request. I suggest you delete the
line and forget about it.

Luke

If you generated that controller then perhaps rails assumed a GET was
the safest thing to default?
