Add a reference column migration in Rails

When you already have authors and books tables and wish to add a new relationship between them

All you need to do is: just generate a migration using the following command:

rails g migration AddAuthorsToBooks author:references

Which will create a migration file as:

class AddAuthorsToBooks < ActiveRecord::Migration
  def change
    add_reference :books, :author, index: true
