View Full Version : Stop HasOne Associations from Auto Hitting Server?

26 Feb 2014, 5:20 PM
I am currently loading large nested models, when a model is new it looks something like:

"data": {
"id": 2,
"effectiveDate": new Date(
"terminationDate": new Date(
"Division": null,
"budgets": [],
"saleGoals": [],
"teamMembers": []
"total": 1,
"success": true

When it processes that information into the forms it checks the division for a: record.getDivision().getUser() (association)
it tries to hit the server twice once for the division and once for the user. The issue is that without any id's it just hits my server requesting, a full list of divisions and a full list of users, and then throws an error.

What would be ideal is that the associations would just stay local, I already check to see if the id is 0 on the record (extjs auto creates a blank Division with a blank User in the associated store) but when I call the getDivision().get('id') == 0 it hits the server for the division.

How do I stop the association from auto hitting the server when I don't have data for that association yet?

If the association isn't given data, it will attempt to retrieve the data. Only way to stop it currently is to override the association or give it dummy data.

If I pass it in a empty record with a zero based id, will the association still think its a proper record or does a zero based id mean phantom and it will hit the server again anyway? I am worried it will attempt a PUT call at some point if I give it a real id.
