Getting Sidekiq error "delay is defined by Active Record"

Reason: You very likely have a model that has a delay attribute.

You can configure Sidekiq to remove its delay method by adding this to your Sidekiq initializer:


If you need to keep Sidekiqs delay features, add Sidekiq.hook_rails! before the option above. The sidekiq methods will be prefixed with sidekiq_ then.

Does your version of Ruby on Rails still receive security updates?
Rails LTS provides security patches for unsupported versions of Ruby on Rails (2.3, 3.2, 4.2 and 5.2).
