I found it useful for my development to make 2 changes
1. Update log message to be more explicit such as "WARNING: Can't
mass-assign *in SomeModel* protected attributes: blah"
2. Thrown an exception - this would only make sense if whitelist_attributes
is set to true
Any opinion if this would be a good suggestion for the rails feature
request, specifically #2?
#2 already exists:
config.active_record.mass_assignment_sanitizer = :strict
will turn on exception raising. A better error message wouldn't hurt
