Issue retrieving current_user in Devise with different model name-Collection of common programming errors
I have got Devise setup in my rails app with my model called auth_user instead of user. I have tried accessing the currently logged in user’s email address (a field called email) for me to use in a query against an Employee model like so
@employee = Employee.find_by_Email(current_auth_user.email)
but get the error:
undefined method `email' for nil:NilClass
Any ideas on how to resolve this issue?
** EDIT **
Fix as suggested by @theButler in the comments. Resolution was to add
To the top of the class.
