Could not find devise mapping for path "/sessions/user" devise log in error

Very frustrating for the last few days.

I have a rails app with Devise installed where I generated a new User model and I generated Devise views as well.

This happens when I try to sign in as an existing user right when I click "Log in" after filling out the email and password fields:

AbstractController::ActionNotFound - Could not find devise mapping for path "/sessions/user".
This may happen for two reasons:

1) You forgot to wrap your route inside the scope block. For example:

devise_scope :user do
get "/some/route" => "some_devise_controller"
end

2) You are testing a Devise controller bypassing the router.
If so, you can explicitly tell Devise which mapping to use:

@request.env["devise.mapping"] = Devise.mappings[:user]

The thing is, when I sign up as a new user, it works just fine. I can fill in the appropriate fields, click "Sign up" and it notifies me that I've logged in successfully and redirects me to the root URL showing the user as logged in. The error only occurs when I try to log in.

Here are my routes:

Ripelist::Application.routes.draw do
devise_for :users, path_names: { sign_in: 'login', sign_out: 'logout', sign_up: 'signup' }
root to: 'listings#index'
match '/sessions/user', to: 'devise/sessions#create', via: :post

resources :users
resources :listings
resources :categories
resources :sessions
end


Can anybody help?

Answer

in your routes.rb file, try wrapping your routes inside the scope block as the error message suggests. Here is an example:

devise_scope :user do
   get "signup", to: "devise/registrations#new"
   get "login", to: "devise/sessions#new"
   get "logout", to: "devise/sessions#destroy"
end

This will give you nicely named routes.

And by the way, if you are using Rails 4, get rid of the match method. you need to specify the HTTP verb.


OBSOLETE old answer:

(Below is the old obsolete version of the code, shown for reference. Use the code above.)

devise_for :users, path_names: { sign_in: 'login', sign_out: 'logout', sign_up: 'signup' }

AND

match '/sessions/user', to: 'devise/sessions#create', via: :post
