Bypass authentication for signup page in Rails API

Posted on Updated on

I added authentication on my rails api.

Works great, only authenticated users can now call on the api.

Now my problem was that I am unable to signup, since it requires authentication. Catch-22.

how to bypass?

Authentication is being inherited from application_controller.rb

for the signup controller, I just inherited directly from ActionController::API

 

 

This was helpful if you need to setup the api and you need assistance.
