Ignore attr_accessible in seed file

Is there a way to tell Rails to ignore attr_accessible when seeding the database and to allow mass assignment with create or new?
I know how to skip validations but do not find anything on mass assignment…

Here's one way I found a quick Google search:

Thank you. I’ve already been there and this works but I was looking for a more global setting for all entries in the seed file. Is there really no other way?

Bit hacky but you could override
remove_attributes_protected_from_mass_assignment or overwrite the
attribute containing the list of protected attributes

Thank you!
I did not find the remove_attributes_protected…, but did find an interesting method sanitize here:
rails / activemodel / lib / active_model / mass_assignment_security / sanitizer.rb

My solution for the archives: seeds.rb
module ActiveModel
module MassAssignmentSecurity
module Sanitizer
def sanitize(attributes)
attributes
end
end
end
end

Just to save the next person the aggravation of figuring this out,
Sanitizer is a class now, not a module, and the sanitize method takes
two parameters. So you need this:

module ActiveModel
  module MassAssignmentSecurity
    class Sanitizer
      def sanitize(attributes, authorizer)
        attributes
      end
    end
  end
end
