Returns:

  • (Boolean)

def connected?
  connection_handler.connected?(connection_specification_name, role: current_role, shard: current_shard)
end

#connected_to(database: nil, role: nil, shard: nil, prevent_writes: false, &blk) ⇒ Object

Connects to a role (ex writing, reading or a custom role) and/or shard for the duration of the block. At the end of the block the connection will be returned to the original role / shard.

If only a role is passed, Active Record will look up the connection based on the requested role. If a non-established role is requested an ActiveRecord::ConnectionNotEstablished error will be raised:

ActiveRecord::Base.connected_to(role: :writing) do
  Dog.create! # creates dog using dog writing connection
end

ActiveRecord::Base.connected_to(role: :reading) do
  Dog.create! # throws exception because we're on a replica
end

When swapping to a shard, the role must be passed as well. If a non-existent shard is passed, an ActiveRecord::ConnectionNotEstablished error will be raised.

When a shard and role is passed, Active Record will first lookup the role, and then look up the connection by shard key.

ActiveRecord::Base.connected_to(role: :reading, shard: :shard_one_replica) do
  Dog.first # finds first Dog record stored on the shard one replica
end

The database kwarg is deprecated and will be removed in 6.2.0 without replacement.

#connected_to?(role:, shard: ActiveRecord::Base.default_shard) ⇒ Boolean

Returns true if role is the current connected role.

ActiveRecord::Base.connected_to(role: :writing) do
  ActiveRecord::Base.connected_to?(role: :writing) #=> true
  ActiveRecord::Base.connected_to?(role: :reading) #=> false

end

#connected_to_many(*classes, role:, shard: nil, prevent_writes: false) ⇒ Object

Connects a role and/or shard to the provided connection names. Optionally prevent_writes can be passed to block writes on a connection. reading will automatically set prevent_writes to true.

connected_to_many is an alternative to deeply nested connected_to blocks.

Usage:

ActiveRecord::Base.connected_to_many(AnimalsRecord, MealsRecord, role: :reading) do
  Dog.first # Read from animals replica
  Dinner.first # Read from meals replica
  Person.first # Read from primary writer
end

#connecting_to(role: default_role, shard: default_shard, prevent_writes: false) ⇒ Object

Use a specified connection.

This method is useful for ensuring that a specific connection is being used. For example, when booting a console in readonly mode.

It is not recommended to use this method in a request since it does not yield to a block like connected_to.

#connects_to(database: {}, shards: {}) ⇒ Object

Connects a model to the databases specified. The database keyword takes a hash consisting of a role and a database_key.

This will create a connection handler for switching between connections, look up the config hash using the database_key and finally establishes a connection to that config.

class AnimalsModel < ApplicationRecord
  self.abstract_class = true

  connects_to database: { writing: :primary, reading: :primary_replica }
end

connects_to also supports horizontal sharding. The horizontal sharding API also supports read replicas. Connect a model to a list of shards like this:

class AnimalsModel < ApplicationRecord
  self.abstract_class = true

  connects_to shards: {
    default: { writing: :primary, reading: :primary_replica },
    shard_two: { writing: :primary_shard_two, reading: :primary_shard_replica_two }
  }
end

Returns an array of database connections.

Raises:

  • (NotImplementedError)

#establish_connection(config_or_env = nil) ⇒ Object

Establishes the connection to the database. Accepts a hash as input where the :adapter key must be specified with the name of a database adapter (in lower-case) example for regular databases (MySQL, PostgreSQL, etc):

ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection(
  adapter:  "mysql2",
  host:     "localhost",
  username: "myuser",
  password: "mypass",
  database: "somedatabase"
)

Example for SQLite database:

ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection(
  adapter:  "sqlite3",
  database: "path/to/dbfile"
)

Also accepts keys as strings (for parsing from YAML for example):

ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection(
  "adapter"  => "sqlite3",
  "database" => "path/to/dbfile"
)

Or a URL:

ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection(
  "postgres://myuser:[email protected]/somedatabase"
)

In case ActiveRecord::Base.configurations is set (Rails automatically loads the contents of config/database.yml into it), a symbol can also be given as argument, representing a key in the configuration hash:

ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection(:production)

The exceptions AdapterNotSpecified, AdapterNotFound and ArgumentError may be returned on an error.

#while_preventing_writes(enabled = true, &block) ⇒ Object

Prevent writing to the database regardless of role.

In some cases you may want to prevent writes to the database even if you are on a database that can write. while_preventing_writes will prevent writes to the database for the duration of the block.

This method does not provide the same protection as a readonly user and is meant to be a safeguard against accidental writes.

See READ_QUERY for the queries that are blocked by this method.
