Failing spec: sign_in(Fabricate(:user))

I’ve got a spec that started failing a few days ago. It looks like it’s due to something about timzone? I don’t see a way that it’s my plugin’s fault, but maybe I’m missing something?

require 'rails_helper'

describe TopicDefaultTag::ActionsController do
  before do

  it 'can list' do
    get "/topic-default-tag/list.json"
    expect(response.status).to eq(200)

That sounds like you’re missing the timezone column in your user_options table. Have you run migrations recently in your test database? RAILS_ENV=test bin/rake db:migrate


Why, no! No I haven’t. I ran migrations on the dev database, but not test. Thanks, David!

I don’t understand what’s going on now, but it’s likely not as novice as this problem. :wink:


You should get a message when you’re missing migrations

But this will only work if you’re using the rails_helper. I suspect you need to add require "rails_helper" to the top of your spec file. That might resolve the other issues you’re seeing as well.

Edit: hmmm… maybe we should add --require rails_helper to the .rspec file so that it doesn’t need to be added manually :thinking:


That sounds like the kind of stupid error that I would make! Alas, I do have require 'rails_helper'.

Maybe runing ./bin/rake autospec rather than bundle exec rake autospec was my problem, but it’s still failing at travis, and now this spec seems to be doing a bunch of stuff that I don’t understand for my one little spec, but I’ll just wait and see what happens.

Thanks again.
