  request_via_redirect(:delete, path, parameters, headers)
end

#follow_redirect!Object

Follow a single redirect response. If the last response was not a redirect, an exception will be raised. Otherwise, the redirect is performed on the location header.

  status
end

#get(path, parameters = nil, headers = nil) ⇒ Object

Performs a GET request with the given parameters.

  • path: The URI (as a String) on which you want to perform a GET request.

  • parameters: The HTTP parameters that you want to pass. This may be nil, a Hash, or a String that is appropriately encoded (application/x-www-form-urlencoded or multipart/form-data).

  • headers: Additional HTTP headers to pass, as a Hash. The keys will automatically be upcased, with the prefix 'HTTP_' added if needed.

This method returns an Response object, which one can use to inspect the details of the response. Furthermore, if this method was called from an ActionDispatch::IntegrationTest object, then that object's @response instance variable will point to the same response object.

You can also perform POST, PUT, DELETE, and HEAD requests with post, put, delete, and head.

#request_via_redirect(http_method, path, parameters = nil, headers = nil) ⇒ Object
