This plugin disables mass assignment by default, and prevents the use of attr_protected. Attributes safe for mass assignment must be specified using attr_accessible. Logging is also improved to help prevent attr_accessible-related errors:
- A message is displayed during migrations as a reminder to use attr_accessible for newly added attributes.
- Exceptions are raised on mass assignment of unsafe attributes
Disabling Inaccessible Attributes
Some third party/legacy code may not play nice with this plugin. The behavior can be disabled with the disable_mass_assignment method:
In your own classes, the plugin must be disabled before the offending code is mixed in.
class MyModel < ActiveRecord::Base disable_mass_assignment false include BehaviorWithAttrProtected ... end
