Allows audit of customer orders shown at the time of purchase, keeping with historical changes in:

  • Product
  • Taxon (and Classification)
  • Property (and ProductProperties)
  • Variant (and their OptionValues with her OptionType)

Finally have a section in the backend, from where you can see the change history of an order.

Note: Remember that the history in the order is not enabled by default, you must enable this according to your needs.


Add spree_papertrail to your Gemfile:

gem 'spree_papertrail'

Bundle your dependencies and run the installation generator:

bundle exec rails g spree_papertrail:install


To track product changes you need to add the following line to your order_decorator:

after_save :make_version

Or, to track on specific transition:

state_machine.before_transition from: :address, do: :make_version


First bundle your dependencies, then run rake. rake will default to building the dummy app if it does not exist, then it will run specs. The dummy app can be regenerated by using rake test_app.

bundle exec rake

When testing your applications integration with this extension you may use it's factories. Simply add this require statement to your spec_helper:

require 'spree_papertrail/factories'
