Passing :distinct => true causes an error

Reported by Steve | July 20th, 2009 @ 06:18 PM | in 3.x

Shouldn't named scopes be able to specify distinct? Although I could say select => 'DISTINCT tablename.*' for a find this doesn't work for a count?

    Steve, I am not sure I understand what you say.

    I could make work ":distinct => true" in a count like this (both in Rails 3beta2 and 2.3.5):

    Project.count(:name, :distinct => true)

    For scope, is it something like this you want?:

    scope :uniq_names, :select => :name, :distinct => true

    (You're right specifying :distinct in a scope does not work.)

    This issue has been automatically marked as stale because it has not been commented on for at least three months.

    The resources of the Rails core team are limited, and so we are asking for your help. If you can still reproduce this error on the 3-0-stable branch or on master, please reply with all of the information you have about it and add "[state:open]" to your comment. This will reopen the ticket for review. Likewise, if you feel that this is a very important feature for Rails to include, please reply with your explanation so we can consider it.

    Thank you for all your contributions, and we hope you will understand this step to focus our efforts where they are most helpful.

    • Tag cleared.

    I think this ticket should probably be closed, it was started in 2009, the feature isn't a high priority and is now probably more related to Arel than rails anyway. [state: close]
