In your Controller's #new and #create methods, scope the post to be owned by the current_user (or whatever other scheme you may be using for your logged-in-user management).

def new
@post = current_user.posts.build
end

def create
@post = current_user.posts.create(post_params)
...
end

Now your relationship will take care of getting the correct user in there automatically, whether it's in-memory or in persistence.

NB: If this doesn't appear to work, then you haven't built your relationships correctly, and you need to fix that before proceeding.

I tried adding in the controller's create action just before `if @post.save?` but that didn't cause new records created to have a value for user_id Maybe it was because I'm using a nested form and this record is a child record

Ok thanks And what about passing some params to build?
  @post = current_user.posts.buil(artist_id: @artist.id, tour_id: @tour.id)
