Changeset

Last updated 5 months ago

The changeset performs validations on data objects. If any changeset is not valid, then the database operation will not happen.

user = User.new
changeset = User.changeset(user)
changeset.valid?

Repo operations on single instances will also return a changeset, where you can check is validity and also check for error messages and constraint error messages.

user = User.new
changeset = Repo.insert(user)
changeset.errors.any?
