RailsAdmin is a Rails engine that provides an easy-to-use interface for managing your data.


[Action required] Security issue

RailsAdmin 2.0.1, 2.0.0 and up to 1.4.2 have been reported to have XSS vulnerability. We strongly recommend that you upgrade RailsAdmin to 2.0.2 (and higher) or 1.4.3 as soon as possible, if you are on those versions. See d72090ec for the detail.

Getting started


  • CRUD any data with ease
  • Custom actions
  • Automatic form validation
  • Search and filtering
  • Export data to CSV/JSON/XML
  • Authentication (via Devise or other)
  • Authorization (via CanCanCan or Pundit)
  • User action history (via PaperTrail)
  • Supported ORMs
    • ActiveRecord
    • Mongoid


  1. On your gemfile:
    gem 'rails_admin', '~> 2.0'
  2. Run
    bundle install
  3. Run
    rails g rails_admin:install
  4. Provide a namespace for the routes when asked
  5. Start a server
    rails s
    and administer your data at /admin. (if you chose default namespace: /admin)






To begin with, you may be interested in setting up Devise, CanCanCan or Papertrail!

Per model

class Ball < ActiveRecord::Base
  validates :name, presence: true
  belongs_to :player

rails_admin do configure :player do label 'Owner of this ball: ' end end end
