Paranoid Documents for Mongoid 4 Build StatusGitter chat

Mongoid::Paranoia enables a "soft delete" of Mongoid documents. Instead of being removed from the database, paranoid docs are flagged with a deleted_at timestamp and are ignored from queries by default.

The Mongoid::Paranoia functionality was originally supported in Mongoid itself, but was dropped from version 4.0.0 onwards. This gem was extracted from the Mongoid 3.0.0-stable branch. This gem should not be used with Mongoid versions 3.x and prior.

Caution: This repo/gem mongoid_paranoia (underscored) is different than mongoid-paranoia (hyphenated). The owner of mongoid-paranoia (hyphenated) is not accepting enhancements and has declined our requests to share maintenance of the gem.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'mongoid_paranoia'

Changes in 4.0

Uniqueness validator is not overriden

Old syntax:

validates_uniqueness_of :title
validates :title, :uniqueness => true

New syntax:

validates :title, uniqueness: { conditions: -> { where(deleted_at: nil) } }

Usage

class Person
  include Mongoid::Document
  include Mongoid::Paranoia
end

person.delete   # Sets the deleted_at field to the current time, ignoring callbacks.
person.delete!  # Permanently deletes the document, ignoring callbacks.
person.destroy  # Sets the deleted_at field to the current time, firing callbacks.
person.destroy! # Permanently deletes the document, firing callbacks.
person.restore  # Brings the "deleted" document back to life.
person.restore(:recursive => true) # Brings "deleted" associated documents back to life recursively

The documents that have been "flagged" as deleted (soft deleted) can be accessed at any time by calling the deleted class method on the class.

Person.deleted # Returns documents that have been "flagged" as deleted.

You can also access all documents (both deleted and non-deleted) at any time by using the unscoped class method:

Person.unscoped.all # Returns all documents, both deleted and non-deleted

Callbacks

Restore

before_restore, after_restore and around_restore callbacks are added to your model. They work similarly to the before_destroy, after_destroy and around_destroy callbacks.

Remove

before_remove, after_remove and around_remove are added to your model. They are called when record is deleted permanently .

Example

class User
  include Mongoid::Document
  include Mongoid::Paranoia

  before_restore :before_restore_action
  after_restore  :after_restore_action
  around_restore :around_restore_action

  private

  def before_restore_action
    puts "BEFORE"
  end

  def after_restore_action
    puts "AFTER"
  end

  def around_restore_action
    puts "AROUND - BEFORE"
    yield # restoring
    puts "AROUND - AFTER"
  end
end
