Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Couchdb Wiki" for change notification.

The "PerDocumentAuthorization" page has been changed by BramNeijt.
The comment on this change is: Initial release.


New page:
||<#8080FF> This page forms a summary of the problem and possible solutions, it does
not reflect current CouchDB features. ||

== The problem ==
  For a given user, allow only specific access to a given document in the database.
The user is authenticated using any kind of authentication method (HTTP basic auth, or otherwise)
and is considered to be identified by a single identifying string. Under the term "specific
access", this document considers three types: being able to verify existance, being able to
read the document, and being able to update the document (deleting the document is considered
an update of the document).
