I have two tables in my app which I am attempting to relate through a
join table. The Artist class which uses 'has_many through', works as
expected. However, the Event class using 'has_one through', brings back
class Artist < ActiveRecord::Base
has_many :artist_events, dependent: :destroy
has_many :events, through: :artist_events
class Event < ActiveRecord::Base
has_one :artist, through: :artist_events
class ArtistEvent < ActiveRecord::Base
In irb i get all events for an artist with "a.events" (where a =
Artist.first). But e.artist returns 'nil'. Whats strange is that
a.artist_event returns nill as well. However, when I run a 'find_by' on
the artist_event table and use e.id, the artist_event is returned.
I have tried changing the Event class to use has_one as opposed to
belongs_to, without effect.
What am I missing? Do I need to have an index in the schema?
