assert_response(type, message = nil) public

Asserts that the response is one of the following types:

  • :success - Status code was 200
  • :redirect - Status code was in the 300-399 range
  • :missing - Status code was 404
  • :error - Status code was in the 500-599 range

You can also pass an explicit status number like assert_response(501) or its symbolic equivalent assert_response(:not_implemented). See ActionDispatch::StatusCodes for a full list.
