Association named ‘spree_roles’ was not found; perhaps you misspelled it?
I ran into this error while developing an extension for Spree 1-3-stable
and writing request specs to run on the dummy test app generated via
bundle exec rake test_app.
You may have also run into this error on a normal Spree app if you
installed Spree in your Rails apps using just your Gemfile and bundler
spree install <my_store>.
Regardless, this is an issue with Spree not setting the correct user
model in the spree initializer during install. To correct this, update
config/intializers/spree.rb to use:
Spree.user_class = "Spree::User"
Spree.user_class = "Spree::LegacyUser"
If you’re having this issue with the dummy test app
spec/dummy, just do the same for the dummy app’s initializer:
