assert_redirected_to should surface the message in all fail cases

Reported by justin | April 10th, 2009 @ 05:35 PM | in 3.x

Based on the current source (Rails 2.3.2), when assert_redirected_to fails due to the response redirect not matching the expected redirect the user-supplied message (second parameter) is not shown. This message is only shown if the response is not a redirect.

Example functional test code:

test "ensure all actions are protected" do
  %w{ index new create edit update destroy }.each do |action|
    get action
    assert_redirected_to login_path, "Expected redirect to login page for action: #{ action }"

Corresponding controller code:

def index
  redirect_to some_other_page_path
