BLACKLIST_PARAMS =

These params should not propagate: :adapter and :position are one-use rendering arguments. :sort, :sort_direction, and :page are arguments that stored in the session, if store_user_settings is enabled and wow. no we don't want to propagate :record. :commit is a special rails variable for form buttons :_method is a special rails variable to simulate put, patch and delete actions. :dont_close is submit button which avoids closing form. :auto_pagination is used when all records are loaded automatically with multiple request. :iframe is used to simulate ajax forms loading form in iframe. :associated_id used in add_existing :authenticity_token is sent on some ajax requests :_added is sent on checkbox-list with update_columns :_removed is sent on checkbox-list with update_columns :_popstate sent when loading previous page from history, after using history.pushState :_ jQuery param added for GET requests with cache disabled
