Quick Tech Tip - Rails & Authlogic

June 23, 2010

I was following along with the example project for getting AuthLogic setup on a Rails app, and almost immediately got this error when running UserSession.find:

Couldn’t find User Session without an ID

After poking around a little bit, I realized that I accidentally set the UserSession model to inherit from the default ActiveRecord::Base rather than Authlogic::Session::Base.

Changing it to use the proper base class fixed the problem.
