attr_accessible breaks nested model attributes

Reported by Craig S Walker | May 24th, 2010 @ 12:57 AM

If a model with has_many and accepts_nested_attributes_for also has attr_accessible, then you cannot use nested model attributes to create instances of the child model in the parent model.

I confirmed this using a testbed based on the Railscast for Nested Model Forms. Survey accepts_nested_attributes_for :questions. I then run the following code:

Survey.create({:name => "test", :questions_attributes => [ { :content => "a"} ] }).questions.size

If Survey does not have attr_accessible :name, then the result of this statement is 1. If it does have it, then the result is zero.

I've tested this in Rails 2.3.2 and Rails 3, and got the same behavior.

(I originally described this on Stack Overflow)

    RTFM ;)


    Defines an attributes writer for the specified association(s). If you are using attr_protected or attr_accessible, then you will need to add the attribute writer to the allowed list.

    If you dont allow mass-assignment to :questions, :questions will not be assigned.

    please set to invalid.

    When Coach began as Manhattan Leather Bags in 1941, they were inspired by baseball glove design and they created discount handbags with similar qualities.supra shoes didn't come along until years later. The original handbag collection had twelve designs, and they were made from supple, tan, top-quality leathers, and showed the same excellent craftsmanship and stitching that we still expect today.
