Hello there,

I'm creating a base controller for the admin section of a project. All
controllers whitin the admin section will inherit from it.

#####################################################
#app/controllers/admins/base_controller.rb

class Admins::BaseController < ApplicationController
  layout "admin_cms"
  before_filter :authenticate_admin!
end

#####################################################

#spec/controllers/admins/base_controller_spec.rb

require 'spec_helper'

describe Admins::BaseController do
  controller do
    def index
    end
  end

  describe "before_filter#authenticate_admin!" do
    before(:each) do
      @admin = FactoryGirl.create(:admin)
      @request.env["devise.mapping"] = Devise.mappings[:admin]
    end

    context "when admin is not logged in" do
      it "redirect admin to sign_in path" do
        get :index
        response.should redirect_to new_admin_session_path
      end
    end

  end
end

#####################################################

I've already inclueded Devise::TestHelpers on my spec_helper.rb and I'm
getting this error when running this spec:

#####################################################

Admins::BaseController
  before_filter#authenticate_admin!
    when admin is not logged in
      redirect admin to sign_in path (FAILED - 1)

I changed my spec to this:

#####################################################

require 'spec_helper'

describe Admins::BaseController do
  controller do
    def index
      render nothing: true
    end
  end

  describe "before_filter#authenticate_admin!" do
    context "when admin is not logged in" do
      it "redirect admin to sign_in path" do
        get :index
        response.should redirect_to new_admin_session_path
      end
    end

  end
end

#####################################################

and now I'm getting this error:

#####################################################

Failures:

  1) Admins::BaseController before_filter#authenticate_admin! when admin
is not logged in redirect admin to sign_in path
     Failure/Error: response.should redirect_to new_admin_session_path
       Expected response to be a <:redirect>, but was <200>
So, for some reason it's not entering in the authenticate_admin! before
filter. I'm kind of lost. Thanks again.

#####################################################

I'm using Rails 3.2.13, Ruby 2.0.0, Rspec-rails 2.13.0 and Devise 2.2.3.
I really appreacite if someone could help me out with this. Thanks in
advance.
