Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-947) /_restart API requires "Content-Type: application/json"
Date Tue, 16 Nov 2010 16:54:14 GMT


Filippo Fadda commented on COUCHDB-947:

Good point Jan, I agree. Maybe we should use same approch for the many APIs that actually
are using POST method. For example "/_replicate", "/_compact", "/_view_cleanup", etc.: all
of them are time consuming processes that we can secure in some way. I think all those functions
must use the trick of "Content-Type: application/json", or better, I suggest to use a well
defined and documented custom header.
I can make a list of all those "special" functions.

> The "/_restart" API requires "Content-Type: application/json" header. This is not coherent
because the API doesn't need parameters to be passed using JSON.
