Instance Method Details

- (Object) be_a_new(model_class)

Passes if actual is an instance of model_class and returns true for new_record?. Typically used to specify instance variables assigned to views by controller actions

Use the with method to specify the specific attributes to match on the new record.

Examples:

get :new
assigns(:thing).should be_a_new(Thing)

post :create, :thing => { :name => "Illegal Value" }
assigns(:thing).should be_a_new(Thing).with(:name => nil)

  BeANew.new(model_class)
end

- (Object) be_new_record

Passes if actual returns true for new_record?.

Examples:

get :new
expect(assigns(:thing)).to be_new_record

def be_new_record
  BeANewRecord.new
end

- (Object) be_valid(*args)

Passes if the given model instance's valid? method is true, meaning all of the ActiveModel::Validations passed and no errors exist. If a message is not given, a default message is shown listing each error.

Examples:

thing = Thing.new
expect(thing).to be_valid

  BeValid.new(*args)
end

- (Object) have_been_enqueued

Passes if a job has been enqueued. May chain at_least, at_most or exactly to specify a number of times.

Examples:

before { ActiveJob::Base.queue_adapter.enqueued_jobs.clear }

HeavyLiftingJob.perform_later
expect(HeavyLiftingJob).to have_been_enqueued

HelloJob.perform_later
HeavyLiftingJob.perform_later
expect(HeavyLiftingJob).to have_been_enqueued.exactly(:once)

3.times { HelloJob.perform_later }
expect(HelloJob).to have_been_enqueued.at_least(2).times

HelloJob.perform_later
expect(HelloJob).to enqueue_job(HelloJob).at_most(:twice)

HelloJob.perform_later
HeavyLiftingJob.perform_later
expect(HelloJob).to have_been_enqueued
expect(HeavyLiftingJob).to have_been_enqueued

HelloJob.set(wait_until: Date.tomorrow.noon, queue: "low").perform_later(42)
expect(HelloJob).to have_been_enqueued.with(42).on_queue("low").at(Date.tomorrow.noon)

- (Object) have_enqueued_job(job = nil) Also known as: enqueue_job

Passes if a job has been enqueued inside block. May chain at_least, at_most or exactly to specify a number of times.

Examples:

expect {
  HeavyLiftingJob.perform_later
}.to have_enqueued_job

# Using alias
expect {
  HeavyLiftingJob.perform_later
}.to enqueue_job

expect {
  HelloJob.perform_later
  HeavyLiftingJob.perform_later
}.to have_enqueued_job(HelloJob).exactly(:once)

expect {
  3.times { HelloJob.perform_later }
}.to have_enqueued_job(HelloJob).at_least(2).times

expect {
  HelloJob.perform_later
}.to have_enqueued_job(HelloJob).at_most(:twice)

expect {
  HelloJob.perform_later
  HeavyLiftingJob.perform_later
}.to have_enqueued_job(HelloJob).and have_enqueued_job(HeavyLiftingJob)

expect {
  HelloJob.set(wait_until: Date.tomorrow.noon, queue: "low").perform_later(42)
}.to have_enqueued_job.with(42).on_queue("low").at(Date.tomorrow.noon)

- (Object) have_http_status(target)

Passes if response has a matching HTTP status code.

The following symbolic status codes are allowed:

  • Rack::Utils::SYMBOL_TO_STATUS_CODE
  • One of the defined ActionDispatch::TestResponse aliases:
    • :error
    • :missing
    • :redirect
    • :success

Examples:

Accepts numeric and symbol statuses

expect(response).to have_http_status(404)
expect(response).to have_http_status(:created)
expect(response).to have_http_status(:success)
expect(response).to have_http_status(:error)
expect(response).to have_http_status(:missing)
expect(response).to have_http_status(:redirect)

Works with standard response objects and Capybara's page
