Rails 7 encrypt db field


I’ve got a rails 6 application with which I’d like to upgrade to Rails 7. My Rails 6 app uses a field in called ‘encrypt’ in quasi-each db table to store a unique key per record - inherited from legacy. It would seem there’s a conflict with Rails 7 using the same method name ‘encrypt’. Apart from renaming all the field names and going through each line of code to replace all references of my method encrypt to enable a rails 7 install : is it possible instead to NOT use the new encrypt features of rails 7 ?

thanks, C

It should be possible, but you will have to define your encrypt method in your Application model as something like:

class ApplicationRecord < ActiveRecord::Base
  def encrypt
