Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-540) oauth_token_users seems to be in the wrong place
Date Fri, 23 Oct 2009 15:24:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-540?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12769255#action_12769255

Paul Joseph Davis commented on COUCHDB-540:
-------------------------------------------

Definitely a valid point. Does the _users database not do what you're needing? Or is there
another method you'd prefer? At one point someone mentioned writing an ldap connector but
I've never heard what happened to that. I'm not sure I follow about an FHS violation.

Another possibility that was discussed was giving the config writer more smarts so that it'd
remember the last file that defined a section and use that as the write back target for each
section. This would allow you to have a local_users.ini that would receive updates via config
API and not get appended to some other random file that happened to sort last.

> If one has many users, the oath_token_users section of /etc/couchdb/local.ini becomes
quite large. This:
> a) makes legitimate configuration of the server less friendly
> b) makes the file extremely hard to manage via version control
> c) is probably a violation of the FHS.
