Module: Devise::Models::Confirmable

Extended by:
ActiveSupport::Concern
Includes:
ActionView::Helpers::DateHelper
Defined in:
lib/devise/models/confirmable.rb

Overview

Confirmable is responsible to verify if an account is already confirmed to sign in, and to send emails with confirmation instructions. Confirmation instructions are sent to the user email after creating a record and when manually requested by a new confirmation instruction request.

Options

Confirmable adds the following options to devise:

* +allow_unconfirmed_access_for+: the time you want to allow the user to access their account
  before confirming it. After this period, the user access is denied. You can
  use this to let your user access some features of your application without
  confirming the account, but blocking it after a certain period (ie 7 days).
  By default allow_unconfirmed_access_for is zero, it means users always have to confirm to sign in.
* +reconfirmable+: requires any email changes to be confirmed (exactly the same way as
  initial account confirmation) to be applied. Requires additional unconfirmed_email
  db field to be setup (t.reconfirmable in migrations). Until confirmed new email is
  stored in unconfirmed email column, and copied to email column on successful
  confirmation.
* +confirm_within+: the time before a sent confirmation token becomes invalid.
  You can use this to force the user to confirm within a set period of time.

Examples

User.find(1).confirm!      # returns true unless it's already confirmed
User.find(1).confirmed?    # true/false
User.find(1).send_confirmation_instructions # manually send instructions

Instance Method Details

- (Boolean) active_for_authentication?

Overwrites active_for_authentication? for confirmation by verifying whether a user is active to sign in or not. If the user is already confirmed, it should never be blocked. Otherwise we need to calculate if the confirm time has not expired for this user.

- (Object) after_confirmation (protected)

253
# File 'lib/devise/models/confirmable.rb', line 252

def after_confirmation
end

- (Object) confirm!

Confirm a user by setting it's confirmed_at to actual time. If the user is already confirmed, add an error to email field. If the user is invalid add errors

def confirm!
  pending_any_confirmation do
    if confirmation_period_expired?
      self.errors.add(:email, :confirmation_period_expired,
        period: Devise::TimeInflector.time_ago_in_words(self.class.confirm_within.ago))
      return false
    end

    self.confirmation_token = nil
    self.confirmed_at = Time.now.utc

    saved = if self.class.reconfirmable && unconfirmed_email.present?
      skip_reconfirmation!
      self.email = unconfirmed_email
      self.unconfirmed_email = nil

      # We need to validate in such cases to enforce e-mail uniqueness
      save(validate: true)
    else
      save(validate: false)
    end

    after_confirmation if saved
    saved
  end
end

- (Boolean) confirmation_period_expired? (protected)

Checks if the user confirmation happens before the token becomes invalid Examples:

# confirm_within = 3.days and confirmation_sent_at = 2.days.ago
confirmation_period_expired?  # returns false

# confirm_within = 3.days and confirmation_sent_at = 4.days.ago
confirmation_period_expired?  # returns true

# confirm_within = nil
confirmation_period_expired?  # will always return false

# File 'lib/devise/models/confirmable.rb', line 204

def confirmation_period_expired?
  self.class.confirm_within && (Time.now > self.confirmation_sent_at + self.class.confirm_within )
end

- (Boolean) confirmation_period_valid? (protected)

Checks if the confirmation for the user is within the limit time. We do this by calculating if the difference between today and the confirmation sent date does not exceed the confirm in time configured. Confirm_within is a model configuration, must always be an integer value.

Example:

# allow_unconfirmed_access_for = 1.day and confirmation_sent_at = today
confirmation_period_valid?   # returns true

# allow_unconfirmed_access_for = 5.days and confirmation_sent_at = 4.days.ago
confirmation_period_valid?   # returns true

# allow_unconfirmed_access_for = 5.days and confirmation_sent_at = 5.days.ago
confirmation_period_valid?   # returns false

# allow_unconfirmed_access_for = 0.days
confirmation_period_valid?   # will always return false

# allow_unconfirmed_access_for = nil
confirmation_period_valid?   # will always return true
