Hello,

I have a suite of applications that need to have SSO.  I have implemented it by creating a "security" application that maintains the users table, to which all the other applications have read_only access, which I have set stripping down the users model (in the other applications) and adding the following line above the "hobo_users_model" line:

establish_connection "security_#{Rails.env}".to_sym

This works well except that "hobo g migration" always try to create/drop a users table (in the other applications).  What do I need to do to stop hobo from trying to create a users table?

Henry

Henry,

I don't know about your context but if it's internet facing then I'd strongly suggest that you separate your SSO from your application infrastructure. There are a bunch of open source and commercial SSO implementations that are battle hardened and robust. 

The reason for separating these is that most web frameworks, including Rails, are quite susceptible to DDOS.

Peter,

No, this is a suite of internal hobo applications that need to share authentication services. 

Thanks,

Henry

Hi Henry,

In such a customised situation, Hobo does not currently have a way to
add "exceptions" to the migration generator.

I would advise to create migrations manually for your DB changes: "rails
g migration ...". Or just fix them manually after generating them.

Warm regards,
Ignacio

Henry:
There is an "ignore_tables" configuration statement for this. In your environment.rb file, place a line similar to the following:

  • Generators::Hobo::Migration::Migrator.ignore_tables = ["table1", "table2"]
There is also an "ignore_models" statement that you can use if you need to have a model ignored. I have had to use both statements to accommodate some of the gems that I use in my application.
