I would like to apply logical delete in my application(Instead of permanently deleting a record just have been marked as deleted). I have Added available column to all tables with default value true.
Now I want common place to write the following code for all models.
Write the instance method which make ‘available’ column value false when user clicks on destroy link.
1. ``` Merge the 'available=true' condition to all ActiveRecord's queries while fetching the records.
With reference Rails extending ActiveRecord::Base,
I decided to use monkey patch to do above. Created monkey patch file in config/initializer/active_record_patch.rb:
class ActiveRecord::Base def inactive update_attribute(:available, false) end default_scope :available => true end
Getting following error when add the default_scope
class_of_active_record_descendant': undefined methodabstract_class?’ for Object:Class (NoMethodError)
