Relationships between models are not showing up on Forest Admin (Rails)

Further update: I’ve just realised that none of my database relationships are built-in, e.g. a book has_many authors in my Rails app, but when I’m viewing a book I see no author data alongside it.

Also, when viewing join tables, I’d love for the references to by hyperlinked to the main record, but right now I have flat IDs.

I’ve seen that forest-rails isn’t recommended, and indeed, when I tried it first, I got so many errors relating to UUIDs.

Anybody know how I can get my basic table relationships to be recognised or how I can configure them?

Thank you!

Hi @Nadia and welcome to the developers community! I just moved your topic here since your deployment to Heroku issue was resolved.

Someone will come back to you tomorrow on the issue raised here but I just want to let you know that forest_liana Rails gem has been maintained since the early days and is now part of our core offering.

Hi @ziad. Yes, 8 months later, I’ve finally gotten round to this!

Thank you!

Though I still have an issue with needing my original Production environment deleted.

I am happy to go down the forest-rails route, but I had so many errors to do with UUIDs and my ActionText RichText setups, and I couldn’t find any help while Googling or on this community forum, and so I figured it wasn’t a done path.

If there’s an easy way for me to resolve my UUID errors, then I’ll happily go down the Ruby gem route.

Hello @Nadia,

We are looking at your old production environment to remove it, I forwarded your request to a team member.

Regarding UUID errors, can you send us the error stack trace so that we can investigate on our side? :slight_smile:

Hi @lclisson,

Good morning and thank you for getting back to me so quickly!

Right now, I’m not seeing the UUID errors any longer since I switched to the Postgres/NodeJS route. After a conversation with @ziad I’ve decided to go back to the forest-rails route.

Later today, I’ll attempt it and probably start a new thread once I hit the UUID errors.

I’ll have to delete my project to start again anyway, so perhaps it’s not worth worrying about deleting my old environment.

Perfect, let us know if you encounter difficulties again with UUID errors.

Have a nice day ! :slight_smile:
