How to determine if a record was created or updated in after_save callback (Ruby on Rails)
sometimes in after_save callback it is needed to determine if a record was created or updated without the use of after_create callback.
Rails has no direct way for doing this.
The solution can be as follows:
def before_save @was_a_new_record = new_record? return true end def after_save if @was_a_new_record ... end end
