uninitialized constant Authorization::AasmRoles::AASM (NameError)

Reported by phipster | August 25th, 2008 @ 04:19 PM

Hi, I'm running into problems when trying to get restful_authentication with the --aasm option working. I am a Rails newbie. I performed the following steps from the the instructions at http://github.com/technoweenie/r... to create a sample site using restful authentication with AASM.

  1. Installed the restful_authentication plugin: git clone git://github.com/technoweenie/restful-authentication.git restful_authentication

  2. Installed the rubyist-aasm gem following the instructions provided there, i.e. sudo gem install rubyist-aasm
    I believe the aasm gem was installed correctly, because I can load it from irb or script/console. I was also able to execute the test steps outlined here by Scott Barron with this result:

    irb(main):001:0> require 'rubygems'
    => true
    irb(main):002:0> require 'aasm'
    => true
    irb(main):003:0> class Conversation
    irb(main):004:1> include AASM
    irb(main):005:1> aasm_initial_state :new
    irb(main):006:1> aasm_state :new
    irb(main):007:1> aasm_state :read
    irb(main):008:1> aasm_event :view do
    irb(main):009:2* transitions :to => :read, :from => [:new]
    irb(main):010:2> end
    irb(main):011:1> end
    => #Proc:0xb7b3fd14@/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rubyist-aasm-2.0.2/lib/aasm.rb:59
    irb(main):012:0> Conversation.new.view!
    => true
    irb(main):013:>
    

  3. Generated the restful auth code: ./script/generate authenticated user sessions --aasm

  4. Updated routes.rb and environment.rb as directed

  5. The following error stack was produced when I ran ./script/server (sorry it's so long). If I commented out the user_observer statement in environment.rb, the application started up OK, but died in User#new with the same error "uninitialized constant Authorization::AasmRoles::AASM":

    restful_authentication isn't pulling in the aasm gem. as a temporary workaround you can just put:

    require 'aasm'

    in ApplicationController in your application.rb

    thanks for the fix. Will restful_authentication be updated to pull in the 'aasm' gem from github? i get the same error but i'm using http://github.com/rubyist/aasm/t... as the gem source. i know in the readme, it mentions to use the original svn source.

    could this be the cause of the error? if so, how can we get a fix into the code for this?

    Thanks!! :D That really saved me a few hours... Kind of "dumb" that restful_auth's docs don't mention it... :/

    • Tag changed from aasm, error to aasm, authentication, error, restful, restful_authentication

    I had the same problem and the fix above worked fine, but later I came across the following which also did the trick (and might be a better fix)...

    http://erikonrails.snowedin.net/?p=20

    script/plugin install git://github.com/rubyist/aasm.git

    • Assigned user cleared.

    If you have the aasm gem installed, you can add

    config.gem 'aasm'

    to your environment.rb to fix this.
