I recently upgraded to Rails 7.1 for my project, kidcarekit (a daycare management Saas) and upon running my tests, discovered a dreaded
DEPRECATION WARNING. Well, at least we caught it before 7.2 was released!
Being relatively new to rails, I wasn't immediately clear how to update my project to use the new
Rails.application.credentials instead of
application.rb file looked like this, and the error pointed at
require_relative "boot" require "rails/all" # Require the gems listed in Gemfile, including any gems # you've limited to :test, :development, or :production. Bundler.require(*Rails.groups) module Kidcarekit ...
After some digging it looks like this was due to the
Devise gem having a
SecretKeyFinder that looked like this:
The FIX - I am able to mitigate the warning by implementing a Devise-specific secret key in
devise.rb, but I'd like to keep it using the
secret_key_base. So, in light of Rails 7.1 just being release yesterday, I've decided to wait for
Devise to catch up!
