Ransack undefined method path in Rails 4.2.1
I'm working on a simple CRUD Asset Management app and I want to use Ransack. I think I have this setup properly in my view and controller but each time the index view is hit I get the exception:
undefined methodassets_path' for #<#:0x007fa5f353e9e0>`
Here is my view:
<div class="pull-right"> <%= search_form_for @q do |f| %> <%= f.search_field :asset_name_cont, placeholder: 'Search...' %> <% end %> <table class="table table-striped"> <thead> <tr> <th>Asset Number</th> <th>Asset Name</th> <th>Serial Number</th> <th>Model</th> <th>Manufacturer</th> <th>Asset Type</th> <th>Actions</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <% @assets.each do |a| %> <tr> <td><%= a.asset_number %></td> <td><%= a.asset_name %></td> <td><%= a.asset_serial %></td> <td><%= a.asset_model %></td> <td><%= a.asset_manuf %></td> <td><%= a.asset_type.try(:name) %></td> <td><%= link_to 'View', inventory_path(a), :class => 'btn btn-mini btn-info' %> <%= link_to 'Edit', edit_inventory_path(a), :class => 'btn btn-mini btn-warning' %></td> </tr> </tbody> <% end %> <%= will_paginate @assets %>
Here is my controller excerpt: inventory_controller.rb
def index @q = Asset.ransack(params[:q]) @assets = @q.result.order("asset_number ASC").paginate(:page => params[:page], :per_page => 10) end
And here is my model (with annotation of the fields)
asset.rb id :integer not null, primary key asset_number :string asset_shortname :string asset_name :string asset_desc :text asset_serial :string asset_model :string asset_manuf :string asset_type_id :integer created_at :datetime not null updated_at :datetime not null asset_location :string class Asset < ActiveRecord::Base extend FriendlyId friendly_id :asset_name, use: :slugged validates :asset_name, :asset_serial, :asset_type_id, :asset_model, :asset_manuf, :presence => true belongs_to :asset_type end
I think I have the controller wired up fine, I was having issues before with forms and routes by having a controller called assets which is an issue as a reserved name in Rails 4.x.x so I rebuilt the controller as inventory and call the Asset class from within.
My question is, I the search_form_for field to look at the Asset model's field for asset_name but when I write the view as I've laid out I constantly get that path error.
Is there a way to pass a different path into the Ransack search_field method so that I can get past what seems to be an issue with conventions?
If you need more information or if my question is not clear enough, please do not hesitate to edit or ask for more information. Thanks all!
Ok, I figured this out. Similar to issues I was seeing with breaking Rails naming conventions in my other forms, I had to pass the url and method in the
search_form_for helper method. It's working!
Here's my view for the search now:
<%= search_form_for(@q, url: "/inventory", method: :get) do |f| %> <%= f.search_field :asset_name_cont, placeholder: 'Search...' %> <% end %>
