Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-651) Allow URL rewriting to be specified as a user-defined function instead of a regex pattern
Date Fri, 12 Feb 2010 17:34:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-651?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12833082#action_12833082

Paul Joseph Davis commented on COUCHDB-651:
-------------------------------------------

Theoretically this would be ok, but a user defined function would require a view server round
trip for every request which would bring the pain in terms of performance.

> URL rewriting is currently specified with a regular expression. A user-defined function
would make this more flexible and has the potential to be much clearer than complex regex
patterns. A regex pattern is a degenerate case of the user-specified function.
> One (but not the only) usage case is role-based document selection.
> The role is retrieved from userctx and a startkey/endkey component is appended to the
URL to limit the scope of available documents.
