Hi, i have no idea how to choose best way. There are three models User, Department and Task. Each user assigned to one department (belongs to). Department has many tasks. How to write a policy or something to do without using Pundit, when user can see only tasks from assigned department?
Without Pundit, you can scope your queries in the controller with
@tasks = current_user.department.tasks so that it always accesses them through the User.
With Pundit, you can setup a scope to reference the Department on the user:
class TaskPolicy < ApplicationPolicy class Scope < TaskPolicy attr_reader :user, :scope def initialize(user, scope) @user = user @scope = scope end def resolve @scope.where(department_id: @user.department_id) end end end
And use this by saying
@tasks = policy_scope(Task)
