This method is deprecated or moved on the latest stable version. The last existing version (v3.2.13) is shown here.

with_scope(scope = {}, action = :merge, &block) public

with_scope lets you apply options to inner block incrementally. It takes a hash and the keys must be :find or :create. :find parameter is Relation while :create parameters are an attributes hash.

class Article < ActiveRecord::Base
  def self.create_with_scope
    with_scope(:find => where(:blog_id => 1), :create => { :blog_id => 1 }) do
      find(1) # => SELECT * from articles WHERE blog_id = 1 AND id = 1
      a = create(1)
      a.blog_id # => 1
    end
  end
end

In nested scopings, all previous parameters are overwritten by the innermost rule, with the exception of where, includes, and joins operations in Relation, which are merged.

joins operations are uniqued so multiple scopes can join in the same table without table aliasing problems. If you need to join multiple tables, but still want one of the tables to be uniqued, use the array of strings format for your joins.

class Article < ActiveRecord::Base
  def self.find_with_scope
    with_scope(:find => where(:blog_id => 1).limit(1), :create => { :blog_id => 1 }) do
      with_scope(:find => limit(10)) do
        all # => SELECT * from articles WHERE blog_id = 1 LIMIT 10
      end
      with_scope(:find => where(:author_id => 3)) do
        all # => SELECT * from articles WHERE blog_id = 1 AND author_id = 3 LIMIT 1
      end
    end
  end
end

You can ignore any previous scopings by using the with_exclusive_scope method.

class Article < ActiveRecord::Base
  def self.find_with_exclusive_scope
    with_scope(:find => where(:blog_id => 1).limit(1)) do
      with_exclusive_scope(:find => limit(10)) do
        all # => SELECT * from articles LIMIT 10
      end
    end
  end
end

Note: the :find scope also has effect on update and deletion methods, like update_all and delete_all.
