If it’s a one time thing you can turn
record_timestamps on or off.
ActiveRecord::Base.record_timestamps = false #set timestamps manually ActiveRecord::Base.record_timestamps = true
When I ran into this issue with my app, I searched around for a bit and this seemed like it made the most sense to me. It’s an initializer that I can call where I need to:
module ActiveRecord class Base def update_record_without_timestamping class << self def record_timestamps; false; end end save! class << self def record_timestamps; super ; end end end end end
