How to validate model attribute

Harris Mariano asked in Rails

Hello everyone, question.

I have the following code:

class Country < ActiveRecord::Base
has_many :cities, dependent: :destroy
accepts_nested_attributes_for :cities

class City < ActiveRecord::Base
belongs_to :country
has_many :islands, dependent: :destroy

class Island < ActiveRecord::Base
belongs_to :city
validates :name , uniqueness: { scope: :city_id }

How to make island name unique within the city and within the country. Thank you in advance.
