Ruby

fixture tests password failure

My problem is in writing tests > Fixtures

It somehow fails entering password data in test database. Followed the devise installing to the letter.

ActiveRecord::StatementInvalid: SQLite3::SQLException: table users has no column named password: INSERT INTO "users" ("first_name", "last_name", "email", "profile_name", "password", "password_confirmation", "created_at", "updated_at", "id") VALUES ('Jarjar', 'Binks', 'jarjar@binks.com', 'jarjarbinks', 'password', 'password', '2013-02-07 12:47:28', '2013-02-07 12:47:28', 979681144)

This is after entering data in users.yml

jarjar:
  first_name: "Jarjar"
  last_name: "Binks"
  email: "jarjar@binks.com"
  profile_name: "jarjarbinks"
  password: "password"
  password_confirmation: "password"

I am having the same problem. Any solutions out there?

I got past it by leaving them out of the data in the fixture, but it could it be a recent change in devise?

Try taking out the password and password_confirmation columns from the users fixture and let us know if that helps!

Yup that was how I got through :) thanks

Worked for me too, thanks!

In the video: http://teamtreehouse.com/library/programming-2/build-a-simple-version-of-facebook/writing-tests/fixtures <br> Password and password_confirmation are entered into users.yml at 1:08, and the same error messages show up briefly in the video ("table users has no column named password"). Then at 2:14 it shows the users.yml file without the password and confirmation. I think it was an editing error.

Hey @Devon that's correct. We have it on the roadmap for things to fix and I've added notes to the video to follow along with. Thanks!
