Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-34) Enable replicator to use HTTP authentication
Date Tue, 27 Jan 2009 19:31:02 GMT


Adam Kocoloski commented on COUCHDB-34:

I can submit a patch for this if we decide on the API for specifying credentials.  The JSON
object POSTed to _replicate looks like

    "source": "",
    "target": "dbname",
    "source_options": { "headers": [ {K,V} ] },
    "target_options: { }

Do we want to make clients do the Base64 encoding themselves?  In that case, they can stick
the authentication header in the JSON object.  Do we want some alternative option in the _options
Objects?  Do we want to support http://user:pass@host:port URLs?

> You can currently give the CouchDB replicator HTTP URIs to remote databases. However,
if one of those remote instances is behind HTTP authentication, the replication will fail.
It should be possible to specify authentication credentials to the replicator, which it would
then use in response to 401 responses.
