The easiest way is probably to just have a boolean “is_admin” field on the user model.

Really depends on your other requirements though.

Have you created two different models, one for admin and one for user? Or are you using an authorization scheme where you give individual users (all the same model) different roles?

But now i want to make the some users to act as admin, please tell me
the process of making a user as admin

The great way to use Devise , for me, it’s t couple it with the Gem CANCAN to manage capabilities. Then

you just have to make a migration to add different ‘role’ to the user(with devise) like ‘ADMIN’, ‘COMMON’,or ‘VISITOR’.

Checkout the Readme.md of the gem Cancan on these suitable links:

I hope this will help you.

Good luck :wink:
