Have you seen exceptions like this before?
“ActionController::NotImplemented: Only requests are allowed.”
This is usually the result of a Microsoft product sending an OPTIONS request to your app with a user_agent of “Microsoft Office Protocol Discovery”. This middleware will stop those requests in their tracks, and keep them from hitting your rails stack.
TO USE with Rails 2.3:
gem install CodeOfficer-rack-options-request
then in your environment.rb:
config.gem "CodeOfficer-rack-options-request", :lib => 'rack/options/request' config.middleware.use 'Rack::Options::Request'
For more information, please read: rails.learnhub.com/lesson/2318-dealing-with-microsoft-office-protocol-discovery-in-rails
Until I learn TDD, you can test your local app with …
curl -X GET http://localhost:3000/
Should return your normal content.
curl -X OPTIONS http://localhost:3000/
Should return a 200 status and “Microsoft Office Protocol Discovery”.
