Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-584) Remote Replication with HTTP Auth fails on design docs
Date Mon, 30 Nov 2009 17:32:20 GMT


Adam Kocoloski commented on COUCHDB-584:

Thanks, Christian.  The bit with the mangled query-string parameters on the redirection is
fixed in 0.10.1, but I think I now see the problem with the credentials.  The replicator simply
follows the URL in the Location response header, and that URL won't include the auth info.
 Patching this will require the replicator to decode http://user:pass@host:port URLs instead
of relying on the ibrowse HTTP client library to do that for us.

A temporary workaround would be to construct the Authorization header yourself and include
that in the POST to _replicate, for example

      "Authorization":"Basic ...="

> Looks like the redirect doesn't  send the auth parameters on the second attempt (and
the URL looks fishy too, but it works from the browser with the correct auth parameters)
> I start the replication with
> curl -X POST   -d '{"source":"http://admin:*****",
