Posted in 2factor Auth best practice, Please help

Thank you, Chris. I have watched the Gorails 2factor Auth tutorial. I have a couple of questions that leave me with a few questions.

  • I imagine a scenario where a person has left their laptop open, and a passerby changes their settings to remove 2-factor auth.
    • Can I add a feature requiring the user to enter their password to change the 2-factor setting?
    • Is this requiring a password for the setting change convention, or am I adding unneeded complexity?
    • Do you know of a tutorial that shows how to add a password to a change in settings? If this is commonplace?

Issue : Rails Credentials
What am I attempting to do: Add Twitter Api_key & Api_key_secret key to my rails app using the rails credentials:edit --enviroment=developement command.
environment details: editor Atom
list of errors and attempts to resolve them:
ran: rails credentials:edit --enviroment=developement
traceback:`edit': wrong number of arguments (given 1, expected 0) (ArgumentError)
ran: EDITOR="atom --wait" rails credentials:edit
which: creates a ####.credentials.yml file, but the command line is now left hanging. I am not able to exit and save any edits to the file. Forcing me to control + c to make the command line usable again.
Thank you for your help

Posted in Testing API Integrations with WebMock Discussion

Thank you!

Hello Chris,
Thanks for this tutorial! when pushing the connect to Twitter button, I receive this error
400 Bad Request
Extracted source (around line #254):

self.token_request(http_method, uri.path, token, request_options, arguments)
when (400..499)
raise OAuth::Unauthorized, response
I adjusted to using a post method in the views/main/index file
to match the new requirements for omniauth.
'<%=button_to "Connect Twitter", "/auth/twitter", method: :post, class: "btn btn-primary" %>

An error occurs when I run Rails C and then run Rails.application.credentials.twitter I receive nil as my response, but when run 'EDITOR="atom --wait" rails credentials: edit I can see the saved Twitter api_key

Thank you
