Overriding Load Methods for Declarative Authorization

December 17, 2011

The trick here is to be sure that the methods you are overriding are declared specifically as protected methods.  If they are public or private methods, Declarative Authorization will ignore them.

So, in your UsersController, declare it like so:

protected
def load_user
  @user = User.find_by_login(params[:id])
  raise ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound.new("Could not find User with login=#{params[:id]}") unless @user
end

If you do not explicitly raise the error in this method when the record is not found, DA will fall back to it’s default loading methods.
