Rails – Devise User Sign In for RSpec

Last time we should you how to create the mock user using the Factory Girl ♥ Rails gem.
Rails – Create Mock Data for RSpec

Recalled that spec file.

describe "for an authorized user" do

  before(:each) do
    # Create the user object by factory
    @user = Factory(:user)
    # Sign in the yser


The above codes use the test_sign_in() function which is defined in the <rails_project_root>/spec/spec_helper.rb

RSpec.configure do |config|
  def test_sign_in(user)


I need to confirm the user before sign in because i have enabled the :confirmable setting in app/models/user.rb. otherwise you will get the following error.
Failure/Error: @user = test_sign_in(Factory(:user))
uncaught throw :warden


Done =)
