Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-188) _bulk_docs fails when deleting and adding a doc with the same id
Date Sat, 24 Jan 2009 20:35:59 GMT


Matt Goodall commented on COUCHDB-188:


I'm a bit confused why this was closed. Perhaps a description of the
"new behaviour" is available somewhere?

The only mention of anything related to a change in _bulk_docs I've
*noticed* is about not failing everything in the list of updates
(might be nice if that was optional, actually) and the associated
error reporting. However, that doesn't necessarily fix the problem I

Can anyone explain how the planned change fixes things?

Thanks, Matt

> CouchDB returns a "412 Precondition Failed" when the list of changes sent to _bulk_docs
deletes a document and later creates a document with the same id as the deleted document:
>     {"docs": [
>         {"_id": "docid", "_rev": "<rev>", "_deleted": true},
>         {"_id": "docid"}
>         ]}
> Once fixed, the response JSON document  will return the same docid twice in the list
but it's presumably ordered consistently with the request data so any client should be able
to understand the response.
> Demonstrating the problem using curl is easy enough:
> $ curl -X PUT http://localhost:5984/test
> {"ok":true}
> $ curl -X PUT -d "{}" http://localhost:5984/test/docid
> {"ok":true,"id":"docid","rev":"4140747751"}
> $ curl -X POST -d '{"docs": [{"_id": "docid", "_rev": "4140747751", "_deleted": true},
{"_id": "docid"}]}' http://localhost:5984/test/_bulk_docs
> {"error":"conflict","reason":"Document update conflict."}
> Note: this is likely related to COUCHDB-172.
