Date Wed, 02 May 2012 11:55:40 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "How_to_create_users_via_script" page has been changed by DaveCottlehuber:
http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/How_to_create_users_via_script

Comment:
scripting user creation

New page:
= Creating Users in CouchDB via script =

<<Include(EditTheWiki)>>
<<TableOfContents(3)>>

>From CouchDB 1.2.0 onwards, it is very easy to script the creation of new users by PUTting
a correctly formatted JSON document into /_users. Simply PUT a document of the following structure
to {{{$COUCHDB/_users/$ID}}}

{{{
{
  "_id": "org.couchdb.user:$ID",
  "name": "$ID",
  "roles": [],
  "type": "user",
  "password": "$PASSWORD"
}
}}}
The provided password will be salted, and stored as a sha hash.

For example, to create a user {{{wubble}}} with password {{{tubble}}}:
{{{
COUCH=http://admin:passwd@localhost:5984
curl -HContent-Type:application/json -vXPUT $COUCH/_users/org.couchdb.user:wubble --data-binary
'{"_id": "org.couchdb.user:wubble","name": "wubble","roles": [],"type": "user","password":
"tubble"}'
