How to resolve 403 Forbidden error when rendering sign-up view for admins?

Alfred Montalvo Jr asked in Rails

Is there a way to resolve 403 Forbidden error when rendering a sign-up view for admins? This issue does not happen to the user sign-up views.

I am using Rails 6.0.3.5, Ruby 2.7.1 and Devise 4.7.3.

I have followed the information in this link to set-up multiple devise models:
https://github.com/heartcombo/devise/wiki/How-to-Setup-Multiple-Devise-User-Models

I've also checked the 'Admin' directory and view file permissions and they match the same permissions that are used for the 'User' folder and view files.

So I don't understand why a '403 Forbidden' error is returned when trying to render the devise views for the Admins.

Any guidance to help resolve this error would be greatly appreciated.

Update ....I was able to resolve the 403 Forbidden error when rendering the admin sign-up view by starting the rails project over again from scratch and installing/updating web-packer after running bundle install for the new rails project. And then afterwards I installed devise and created the devise models, views and controllers for the admins and users.

The lesson learned was to install and update web-packer before installing devise and generating the devise models, views and controllers for the respective user classes.
