Subject [jira] Closed: (COUCHDB-441) Insert _user and _timestamp on document writes
Date Wed, 29 Jul 2009 16:18:14 GMT


Paul Joseph Davis closed COUCHDB-441.

       Resolution: Won't Fix
    Fix Version/s: 0.10
         Assignee: Paul Joseph Davis

Inserting timestamps automagically would be bad because it would limit a whole swath of use
cases. Probably the same for user id.

The feature you're wanting is the end point that allows a JavaScript function to mutate incoming
docs before they're written to the DB. If there isn't a ticket for that yet please create
one so that it stares at us like a lost puppy and it'll be gotten to.

> 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.
