Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-441) Finally implement pre-write-doc-edit handlers.
Date Thu, 30 Jul 2009 18:23:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-441?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12737214#action_12737214
] 

Curt Arnold commented on COUCHDB-441:
-------------------------------------

 ?include_doc=true could be borrowed from the view syntax so that you got the committed doc
back as the "doc" member of the reply regardless of whether there was any pre-write-doc-edit
handler.  If you aren't modifying or you don't need the doc, you could omit the param or set
it to false.

I'd discourage special replacements sequences, then you have to figure out how to escape them
when you really wanted a literal "$now$" in the body.

> 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.
