Ruby Question

Ruby on Rails Tutorial by Michael Hartl - no route action, but it's in the routes.rb

Update - typical user error - guys thanks for all the technical help! It looks like the password_reset_controller_test should have never been made. For some reason - my control exists even though there was a "--no-test-framework" used in 12.1.1. I'm pretty sure I mistyped something & that's why the tutorial doesn't have a ID for the user on it. To recap: the solution was removing the controller test - as there's an integration test made later.

I've got an issue with an error claiming no route, but can clearly see the route in the routes.rb file & in the rake routes. I'm using Michael Hartl's Ruby on Rails tutorial guide. In chapter 12, I've got a failing test. I tested this by removing and adding back several parts - it appears to actually be in the controller, even though it claims no action found. I also checked for params issues as best as I know how with my limited knowledge.

Any hints would be appreciated!

Thanks ...

Here's rake routes file - if I read this right there's an edit option in there ... also the editing of the route file when I remove the resource gets a different error message.

I think you should be passing the required parameter with the request as below:

test "should get edit" do
  get :edit, { id: <id-of-the-resource-for-your-controller> }
  assert_response :success
