admin user / devise

I know there is a current_user method for devise, but how do you check if the user is admin? (I’ve got a user flagged as admin).

I have a admin menu that I’d like to enable / disable when admin is logged in.

Thanks,

Joe

Do you mean that you have a column in users table named admin which is
true or false? if so then just test current_user.admin

Is it a boolean column?
We wind up setting @user = current_user, and then checking

if @user.admin

#current_user.admin should work just as well if you don’t need to hang on to the actual signed in user.

end

Otherwise,

@user.<column_name> == “admin” #(or whatever you use)

cheers,

Yes, lol. That easy. I’ll try it.

Thanks, that worked !
