Why have you got user_id as an array?

Colin

In golf course game, some user create some course, after then he may
want to give course credentials to other users. for that purpose i will
take user_ids in array format.

For example bitbucket. we give our repository credentials to other users
who are registered in bitbucket,for edit,modify etc.. that repo.

like that user need to perform CRUD operations on course actually
created by other user.

Please quote the previous message so that it is easier to follow the
thread. Anyone reading your message will have no idea what you are
talking about.

You have course belongs_to user, that means it belongs to only one
user. You cannot have an array of users that it belongs to. If you
want a course to be associated with multiple users you need
has_and_belongs_to or has_many :through. Have a look at the Rails
Guide on ActiveRecord Associations for more information.

If you have not already done so then I advise working right through a
good tutorial such as railstutorial.org (which is free to use online).
That will show you the basics of rails.
