What’s the best practices for overriding default Rails methods? I can’t
seem to find a guide on this topic anywhere online.
Here’s the deal - I want to override the request_forgery_protection for
forms because we don’t set session_ids for bots, and they are now
I have created a file called ‘override_request_forgery_protection.rb’,
put it in /lib, and added to application.rb the line:
Now in the file I have put in the following code:
base.class_eval do alias_method_chain authenticity_token_from_session_id,
def authenticity_token_from_session_id_with_session_check if defined? session.session_id # We have the session ID - behave
as rails normally would
authenticity_token_from_session_id_with_session_check else # We don't have a session ID, instead of croaking, lets
just say the authenticity token is bad
return false end end
However, this code doesn’t seem to be being executed. I am setting
breakpoints in eclipse, and they’re not being hit. Any ideas please?
