it's rather a question than an issue: I want to load user's profile, which is a singular resource through current user and I have something like this:
load_and_authorize_resource :through => :current_user, :singleton => true
but for new action, it tries to assign profile.current_user = current_user and of course there's no profile.current_user= method. Is there a way to tell it to use user method when assigning parent resource?
profile.current_user = current_user
Currently no, but I'll mark further customization to be added along these lines. Right now your best solution is to use a before filter like this.
load_and_authorize_resource :through => :user, :singleton => true
@user = current_user
Marked for consideration in 2.0.
Dear submitter, Since cancan/raynB hasn't been active for more than 6 months and no body else then ryam himself has commit permissions the cancan project is on a stand still.
Since cancan has several issues including missing support for rails 4 cancan is moving forward to cancancan. More details on: #994
If your feel that your pull request or bug is still applicable (and hasn't been merged in to cancan) it would be really appreciated if you would resubmit it to cancancan (https://github.com/cancancommunity/cancancan)
We hope to see you on the other side!
