You can add extend Devise::Models in User.rb Model.
It fixed for me.

This is Devise issue, but not the gem. And this is a Stack Overflow question.

ActiveRecord ORM was hard coded inside of the gem before. Now you must follow by Devise configuration.

  # ==> ORM configuration
  # Load and configure the ORM. Supports :active_record (default) and
  # :mongoid (bson_ext recommended) by default. Other ORMs may be
  # available as additional gems.
  require 'devise/orm/<%= options[:orm] %>'

Check also the gem doc.

I have met with the same issue in version 1.1.0, when I change the devise_token_auth to previous version 1.0.0, it works.

drj17 commented Apr 14, 2019

I would argue this is not a devise issue because you cannot install this gem with the readme as is. Perhaps someone would like to make that pull request? I could do it one I get access to a computer

I had the same issue, and just with 1.0.0 version works fine. If I use extend Devise::Models in User.rb raise an error with /auth/sign_in (creating sessions)

The update to the latest version should be documented in a better way, the way to go is create an initializer for devise and load active record, like @drj17 said, the changelog of this gem does not mention the upgrade step, and does not mention the new devise dependency.

I think we should definitely put something in the installation documentation, or at least an 'upgrade' section in the gem docs.

Any progress on this? I'm running into the same issue. @Tiltorito I see you opened a PR but the tests were failing. To me it looks like the reason was an intermittent issue with Travis. You could try restarting the build and that might fix it, but I could be way off base.

udit99 commented Aug 18, 2021

Ran into the same issue. Things that didnt work for me:

  1. Adding extend Devise::Models in User.rb
  2. rails generate devise:install after getting the error.

What worked for me:

  1. Rollback any changes files/migrations made by the devise_token_auth. Get to a state where your app has never heard of this gem.
  2. Before doing anything with devise_token_auth, first install devise by adding to Gemfile and running bundle install
  3. Run rails generate devise:install as per devise's installation instructions
  4. This will generate 2 files: config/initializers/devise.rb and config/locales/devise.en.yml
  5. Now start with devise_token_auth instructions by adding to Gemfile/bundle install/running the generator (rails g devise_token_auth:install User auth)

If this is the best way to solve this problem, I'd be happy to create a PR for the docs, but sounds like there are a lot of ways to skin this cat and not all of them work for everyone

The approuch of @udit99 worked. Another workflow can be:

  1. comment Device code reference in models/user.rb and config/routes.rb
  2. run rails generate devise:install. It should generate the initialization that we need.
  3. Rollback the step 1.

I think should include the Device initialization in the documentation.

Thanks @udit99

johnpitchko commented Sep 3, 2022

Thank you @udit99 and @Luiyit you're steps worked. So then, is it necessary to run rails generate devise:install before rails generate devise_token_auth install?

Or maybe that is not ideal because that will install a bunch of Devise stuff that is not needed for token auth? Just need a way to generate the config/initializers/devise.rb file, correct?

Luiyit commented Sep 9, 2022

Hi @johnpitchko. I think so. You can run devise_token_auth first, but you will get the error, for that reason in this case we need to comment model files (on my steps) or rollback migration files (on audit99's steps).

I think the correct step by stem should be (from scratch)

  1. Add device_token_auth gem to .gemfile
  2. Run rails generate devise:install
  3. Follow current device_token_auth's installation instructions
