I have a user model
schema "users" do
field :email, :string
field :username, :string
field :password_hash, :string
field :password, :string, virtual: true
belongs_to :role, Catastore.Role
belongs_to :store, Catastore.Store
and a store model
schema "stores" do
field :name, :string
has_many :users, Catastore.User
i want to when i create a new store update the the user database. but i can’t find a way to do it with Ecto, it is not the best pratice to put the ID manually?
so when i update would i still use Changeset.pu_assoc or i put the id manually ?
thank you just want to know the best practice. sorry for these stupid question xD
There are no stupid questions
As for best practice, it’s really what suits you. Before Ecto 2, Schemas (nee Models) were everything, but as Ecto 2 has progressed schemaless queries have become better supported and more common. They really do free you up from having to turn data you already have (e.g. an id) into a struct Just Because™ the API dictates it. But … if you already have that data in a Schema struct, then go ahead and use it! The nimbleness of Ecto is quite wonderful at times.
I see thank you. i got the clearer picture now
