#touch(field = nil) ⇒ true/false

Note:

This will not autobuild associations if those options are set.

Touch the document, in effect updating its updated_at timestamp and optionally the provided field to the current time. If any belongs_to associations exist with a touch option, they will be updated as well.

Examples:

Update the updated_at timestamp.

document.touch

Update the updated_at and provided timestamps.

document.touch(:audited)

Parameters:

  • field (Symbol) (defaults to: nil)

    The name of an additional field to update.

Returns:

  • (true/false)

    false if record is new_record otherwise true.

Since:

  • 3.0.0
