Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-263) require valid user for all database operations
Date Fri, 20 Feb 2009 22:51:04 GMT
require valid user for all database operations
----------------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-263
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-263
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: HTTP Interface
    Affects Versions: 0.9
         Environment: All platforms.
            Reporter: Jack Moffitt
            Priority: Minor
         Attachments: couchauth.diff

Admin accounts currently restrict a few operations, but leave all other operations completely
open.  Many use cases will require all operations to be authenticated.   This can certainly
be done by overriding the default_authentication_handler, but I think this very common use
case can be handled in default_authentication_handler without increasing the complexity much.

Attached is a patch which adds a new config option, "require_valid_user", which restricts
all operations to authenticated users only.  Since CouchDB currently only has admins, this
means that all operations are restricted to admins.  In a future CouchDB where there are also
normal users, the intention is that this would let them pass through as well.
