The allowed actions can now be specified using the allowed_actions helper instead of using the @actions or @allowed_actions variables in the resource’s initialize method. In general we recommend against writing HWRPs, but if HWRPs are necessary you should utilize as much of the resource DSL as possible.

Examples

incorrect

def initialize(*args)
  super
  @actions = [ :create, :add ]
end

# also bad
def initialize(*args)
  super
  @allowed_actions = [ :create, :add ]
end

correct

allowed_actions [ :create, :add ]
