Showing the Devise Edit Password Screen

Showing the devise edit password screen

In my rails 3 app using devise, I want to provide a link for users to edit their password.

I have a standard link that points to: /users/password/edit … Log output below(#all action in PasswordsController )

  Started GET “/users/password/edit” for at 2011-08-10 10:11:46 -0700 Processing by Devise::PasswordsController#edit as HTML User Load (0.6ms) SELECT “users”.* FROM “users” WHERE “users”.“id” = 3 LIMIT 1 Redirected to http://localhost:3000/ Completed 302 Found in 309ms

Why is rails redirecting? Why can’t I show the edit password page? Thanks


Devise::PasswordsController#edit is for non-authenticated users who wish to change their password using a reset token. This reset token was previously sent to the user in an email (Reset password instructions). If the user is already logged in, this edit password page will always redirect to the after-sign-in path since it shouldn’t be accessible to authenticated users.


I suppose what you want is to allow the user to change his password after logging in. You have to useDevise::RegistrationsController#edit for that.
