Module: Devise::Models::Authenticatable

Extended by:
ActiveSupport::Concern
Defined in:
lib/devise/models/authenticatable.rb

Overview

Authenticatable module. Holds common settings for authentication.

Options

Authenticatable adds the following options to devise_for:

* +authentication_keys+: parameters used for authentication. By default [:email].

* +http_authentication_key+: map the username passed via HTTP Auth to this parameter. Defaults to
  the first element in +authentication_keys+.

* +request_keys+: parameters from the request object used for authentication.
  By specifying a symbol (which should be a request method), it will automatically be
  passed to find_for_authentication method and considered in your model lookup.

  For instance, if you set :request_keys to [:subdomain], :subdomain will be considered
  as key on authentication. This can also be a hash where the value is a boolean specifying
  if the value is required or not.

* +http_authenticatable+: if this model allows http authentication. By default false.
  It also accepts an array specifying the strategies that should allow http.

* +params_authenticatable+: if this model allows authentication through request params. By default true.
  It also accepts an array specifying the strategies that should allow params authentication.

* +skip_session_storage+: By default Devise will store the user in session.
  By default is set to skip_session_storage: [:http_auth].

active_for_authentication?

After authenticating a user and in each request, Devise checks if your model is active by calling model.active_for_authentication?. This method is overwritten by other devise modules. For instance, :confirmable overwrites .active_for_authentication? to only return true if your model was confirmed.

You overwrite this method yourself, but if you do, don't forget to call super:

def active_for_authentication?
  super && special_condition_is_valid?
end

Whenever active_for_authentication? returns false, Devise asks the reason why your model is inactive using the inactive_message method. You can overwrite it as well:

def inactive_message
  special_condition_is_valid? ? super : :special_condition_is_not_valid
end

- (Object) send_devise_notification(notification, *args) (protected)

This is an internal method called every time Devise needs to send a notification/mail. This can be overridden if you need to customize the e-mail delivery logic. For instance, if you are using a queue to deliver e-mails (delayed job, sidekiq, resque, etc), you must add the delivery to the queue just after the transaction was committed. To achieve this, you can override send_devise_notification to store the deliveries until the after_commit callback is triggered:

class User
  devise :database_authenticatable, :confirmable

  after_commit :send_pending_notifications

  protected

  def send_devise_notification(notification, *args)
    # If the record is new or changed then delay the
    # delivery until the after_commit callback otherwise
    # send now because after_commit will not be called.
    if new_record? || changed?
      pending_notifications << [notification, args]
    else
      devise_mailer.send(notification, self, *args).deliver
    end
  end

  def send_pending_notifications
    pending_notifications.each do |notification, args|
      devise_mailer.send(notification, self, *args).deliver
    end

    # Empty the pending notifications array because the
    # after_commit hook can be called multiple times which
    # could cause multiple emails to be sent.
    pending_notifications.clear
  end

  def pending_notifications
    @pending_notifications ||= []
  end
end

def unauthenticated_message
  :invalid
end

- (Boolean) valid_for_authentication?

Check if the current object is valid for authentication. This method and find_for_authentication are the methods used in a Warden::Strategy to check if a model should be signed in or not.

However, you should not overwrite this method, you should overwrite active_for_authentication? and inactive_message instead.
