Can't seem to disable magic states in production

Reported by Locv39KnvwDeXGpKpisHDaKw | March 13th, 2009 @ 06:54 PM

Having a hell of a time disabling magic states in production. Got it working in development.

I tried putting this in the UserSession model:

disable_magic_states true

I also tried putting this both in an initializer of its own as well as at the end of environment.rb.

UserSession.configure do |config|
  config.disable_magic_states = true

Any ideas what I might be doing wrong? This is with Rails 2.2, Authlogic 1.4.3.

    • State changed from “new” to “open”

    Sounds like a caching issue. Are other config options working?

    I think the other configs are working. Just using config.gem, config.action_controller.session, and config.action_controller.session_store.

    These were my cache settings in production.rb:

    config.cache_classes = false
    config.action_controller.perform_caching = false

    Try updating and see if this fixes the issue. I released a new version today.

    Thanks. Before the new version was released, I ended up removing the problem column from my User model. With the new version, I added


    I'll let you know if I find any problems in production but I'm sure it'll be fine.

    Well you should be able to just set disable_magic_states to true, look at Authlogic::Session::MagicStates. It is impossible for magic states to be validated if it is false.

    Wouldn't it be better for me to just remove the module entirely though? It does the same thing and I assume it saves on memory, no? Or am I missing something?

    I guess it doesn't hurt, the problem is that the names of the modules are somewhat internal. There is no contract between me and you that I won't change them. Where as the configuration option will stay there, and if it changes, I will at least give a deprecation notice or some kind of warning. But I doubt the name will change, and the memory you will save it probably not even noticeable.

    Thanks, that makes sense and I guess the memory would be pretty negligible.
