@detail_route no longer supported in latest version of DRF

Am I right in thinking that I should be using the @action decorator instead and setting detail=True? Something like @action(methods=['get'], detail=True)

I had the same issue when I was going through this course. I ended up doing the same thing you described, so I think it's safe to say you're correct.
