Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-441) Insert _user and _timestamp on document writes
Date Wed, 29 Jul 2009 16:10:14 GMT
Insert _user and _timestamp on document writes 

                 Key: COUCHDB-441
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Database Core
            Reporter: Curt Arnold

It would be useful for auditing to have the identity of the user who inserted a new revision
and the timestamp of the operation to be inserted in the document in the same way that the
new revision number is.

Doing this at the application level is not adequate since it would be readily spoofable and
would bypass the authentication handler.

There is a comment in couch_db:update_docs about generating new revision ids, but I couldn't
quite comprehend what specific code was responsible for inserting the id into the document.
