Boolean wont update

RJ McCollam asked in Rails

I have a column in my users table named active that is a boolean that defaults to true.

I cannot seem to update this value at all. Both in the console and through the update method in my users controller.

In my form I am using checkboxes for the boolean fields, and I have more than just the active column that I am updating. The other boolean column updates without issue.

The only sort of heads up I get is in the server logs — getting a 302 when I submit my form. This only happens when the value for active is different than true. If the value remains true I get a 200.

Feels like I am missing something super basic here.
