Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-684) Futon security dialog overwrites other properties of security doc
Date Sun, 07 Mar 2010 05:51:27 GMT


Chris Anderson commented on COUCHDB-684:

On IRC I talked with David about getting Futon to treat the _security object as if it were
a doc with an _id of "_security". This would make it much easier to edit. It already almost


except Futon tries to POST because it doesn't have an ID. So it'd be an easy fix for Futon
(and we can even put doctext on the JSON edit page so we don't lose the benefit of the dialog

another option would be to add an _id field to the actual JSON response. certainly easier,
especially for non-Futon clients, but I'm wary about "faking" the API so much.

> When the _security document has existing properties other than readers and admins, Futon's
security dialog will overwrite them. If it's agreed this is undesirable behaviour, I'll see
about putting a patch together.
