Module: Devise::Models::Confirmable

Extended by:
ActiveSupport::Concern
Defined in:
lib/devise/models/confirmable.rb

Overview

Confirmable is responsible to verify if an account is already confirmed to sign in, and to send emails with confirmation instructions. Confirmation instructions are sent to the user email after creating a record and when manually requested by a new confirmation instruction request.

Confirmable tracks the following columns:

  • confirmation_token - A unique random token

  • confirmed_at - A timestamp when the user clicked the confirmation link

  • confirmation_sent_at - A timestamp when the confirmation_token was generated (not sent)

  • unconfirmed_email - An email address copied from the email attr. After confirmation

    this value is copied to the email attr then cleared

Options

Confirmable adds the following options to devise:

* +allow_unconfirmed_access_for+: the time you want to allow the user to access their account
  before confirming it. After this period, the user access is denied. You can
  use this to let your user access some features of your application without
  confirming the account, but blocking it after a certain period (ie 7 days).
  By default allow_unconfirmed_access_for is zero, it means users always have to confirm to sign in.
* +reconfirmable+: requires any email changes to be confirmed (exactly the same way as
  initial account confirmation) to be applied. Requires additional unconfirmed_email
  db field to be set up (t.reconfirmable in migrations). Until confirmed, new email is
  stored in unconfirmed email column, and copied to email column on successful
  confirmation. Also, when used in conjunction with `send_email_changed_notification`,
  the notification is sent to the original email when the change is requested,
  not when the unconfirmed email is confirmed.
* +confirm_within+: the time before a sent confirmation token becomes invalid.
  You can use this to force the user to confirm within a set period of time.
  Confirmable will not generate a new token if a repeat confirmation is requested
  during this time frame, unless the user's email changed too.

Examples

User.find(1).confirm       # returns true unless it's already confirmed
User.find(1).confirmed?    # true/false
User.find(1).send_confirmation_instructions # manually send instructions

Instance Method Details

#active_for_authentication?Boolean

Overwrites active_for_authentication? for confirmation by verifying whether a user is active to sign in or not. If the user is already confirmed, it should never be blocked. Otherwise we need to calculate if the confirm time has not expired for this user.

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

# File 'lib/devise/models/confirmable.rb', line 144

def active_for_authentication?
  super && (!confirmation_required? || confirmed? || confirmation_period_valid?)
end

#after_confirmationObject (protected)

A callback initiated after successfully confirming. This can be used to insert your own logic that is only run after the user successfully confirms.

Example:

def after_confirmation
  self.update_attribute(:invite_code, nil)
end

327
# File 'lib/devise/models/confirmable.rb', line 326

def after_confirmation
end

#confirm(args = {}) ⇒ Object

Confirm a user by setting it's confirmed_at to actual time. If the user is already confirmed, add an error to email field. If the user is invalid add errors

      self.errors.add(:email, :confirmation_period_expired,
        period: Devise::TimeInflector.time_ago_in_words(self.class.confirm_within.ago))
      return false
    end

    self.confirmed_at = Time.now.utc

    saved = if pending_reconfirmation?
      skip_reconfirmation!
      self.email = unconfirmed_email
      self.unconfirmed_email = nil

      # We need to validate in such cases to enforce e-mail uniqueness
      save(validate: true)
    else
      save(validate: args[:ensure_valid] == true)
    end

    after_confirmation if saved
    saved
  end
end

#confirmation_period_expired?Boolean (protected)

Checks if the user confirmation happens before the token becomes invalid Examples:

# confirm_within = 3.days and confirmation_sent_at = 2.days.ago
confirmation_period_expired?  # returns false

# confirm_within = 3.days and confirmation_sent_at = 4.days.ago
confirmation_period_expired?  # returns true

# confirm_within = nil
confirmation_period_expired?  # will always return false

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

def confirmation_period_expired?
  self.class.confirm_within && self.confirmation_sent_at && (Time.now.utc > self.confirmation_sent_at.utc + self.class.confirm_within)
end

#confirmation_period_valid?Boolean (protected)

Checks if the confirmation for the user is within the limit time. We do this by calculating if the difference between today and the confirmation sent date does not exceed the confirm in time configured. allow_unconfirmed_access_for is a model configuration, must always be an integer value.

Example:

# allow_unconfirmed_access_for = 1.day and confirmation_sent_at = today
confirmation_period_valid?   # returns true

# allow_unconfirmed_access_for = 5.days and confirmation_sent_at = 4.days.ago
confirmation_period_valid?   # returns true

# allow_unconfirmed_access_for = 5.days and confirmation_sent_at = 5.days.ago
confirmation_period_valid?   # returns false

# allow_unconfirmed_access_for = 0.days
confirmation_period_valid?   # will always return false

# allow_unconfirmed_access_for = nil
confirmation_period_valid?   # will always return true

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

  self.class.allow_unconfirmed_access_for.nil? || (confirmation_sent_at && confirmation_sent_at.utc >= self.class.allow_unconfirmed_access_for.ago)
