Topic: How do I do a parse, lookup, and assign foreign key on a signup page?
Hi, needing some help to just break down the problem.
I have new users who will put in User.Email in a signup process. (I am using Ruby on Rails).
For any given email, I want to parse out the @domain portion.
I then want to find in a different model, Companies, the company_id with the matching column for @domain.
I want to return that instance, and then pass that value into the User.new
I kind of get what needs to happen at the level described, but need some guidance on the next level down.
