Rails Admin History Rollback

Gem Version Dependency Status Code Climate

RailsAdmin extension for enabling users to easily visualise and revert their history audit created by the PaperTrail gem.

Installation

To enable rails_admin_history_rollback, add the following to your Gemfile ensuring it is added after rails_admin:

gem 'rails_admin'
gem 'rails_admin_history_rollback'

It should go without saying that this plugin also requires the paper_trail gem.

E.g. gem 'paper_trail'

Configuration

Simply enable paper_trail on your model --with-changes --with-associations and set up as usual by following the paper_trail instructions.

rails generate paper_trail:install --with-changes --with-associations

In the rails_admin.rb initializer, uncomment the following lines to enable auditing:

history_index
history_show

Notes

You may also need to require "paper_trail" in application.rb

As pointed out in issue #8, paper_trail master branch and release v5.0.0 (when available) causes session issues. Login is reset by devise; paper_trail tries to access to the current_user variable before devise (airblade/paper_trail#556).

The fix is to manually add set_paper_trail_whodunnit before_action as advised here: (https://github.com/airblade/paper_trail#finding-out-who-was-responsible-for-a-change)

# app/controllers/application_controller.rb
class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base
  [...]
  before_action :set_paper_trail_whodunnit
  [...]
end
