update_counters(id, counters) public

A generic “counter updater” implementation, intended primarily to be used by increment_counter and decrement_counter, but which may also be useful on its own. It simply does a direct SQL update for the record with the given ID, altering the given hash of counters by the amount given by the corresponding value:

Parameters

  • id - The id of the object you wish to update a counter on or an Array of ids.

  • counters - An Array of Hashes containing the names of the fields to update as keys and the amount to update the field by as values.

Examples

# For the Post with id of 5, decrement the comment_count by 1, and
# increment the action_count by 1
Post.update_counters 5, :comment_count => -1, :action_count => 1
# Executes the following SQL:
# UPDATE posts
#    SET comment_count = COALESCE(comment_count, 0) - 1,
#        action_count = COALESCE(action_count, 0) + 1
#  WHERE id = 5

# For the Posts with id of 10 and 15, increment the comment_count by 1
Post.update_counters [10, 15], :comment_count => 1
# Executes the following SQL:
# UPDATE posts
#    SET comment_count = COALESCE(comment_count, 0) + 1
#  WHERE id IN (10, 15)
