How to encode (.) Dot in url Rails

Hi All,

I am having routes like below to delete/list an user.

map.connect ‘developer/:user_name/delete’,:controller=>“developers”,:action=>“delete”,:method=>:delete

map.connect ‘developer/:user_name/list’,:controller=>“developers”,:action=>“list”,:method=>:get

While listing the user by encoding the Dot with %2E, i can see the success response
http://localhost:3000/developer/testuser%2Ehu/list

But While trying to delete the user who containing the Dot(.), throws 404 error.

http://localhost:3000/developer/testuser%2Ehu/delete , thanks in advance

You have the
developer/:user_name/delete route set to use “delete” as the method, rather than “get”

Since browsers usually don’t support sending requests other than post or get, you’ll need to pass a “_method=delete” parameter to that route

Check out the rails guide on routing for more information:

http://guides.rubyonrails.org/routing.html#resources-on-the-web

Also do not pass the user name but the id.

Hi Tim,

I already tried with the get method too. but no luck.

Hi Colin

That was an api call, so we cannot change the url.

You probably need to keep the ‘.’ from being treated as a separator (like for a format):

:requirements => { :user_name => /.*/ }

-Rob

constraints (:version => /[0-9]{1}(?:.[0-9]{1,2})/) do

match 'ws/:api_version => ‘api#create’

end

This route will match to 'ws/1.23" and you will have params[:version] == “1.23”

I solved the problem by adding ActionController::Routing::SEPARATORS = %w( / ; , ? ) in my routes.rb file, but an warning message is displaying as below

config/routes.rb:12: warning: already initialized constant SEPARATORS

Want to know whether this warning will be an issue on future?
