Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-1089) Let anonymous users access _active_tasks for view generation estimates
Date Sat, 12 Mar 2011 10:31:59 GMT


Caolan McMahon commented on COUCHDB-1089:

@Dale: if you find support for that patch I'd also consider exposing the filter and its parameters
if a filter is used for replication. It could open up some really nice UI possiblities. Providing
these details could make setting up custom sync with couchapps a user rather than an admin

Also, if we decide to expose _active_tasks on a per-database level it would make sense to
expose it at the root level under a vhost (much like /_session).

I would like to allow anyone to see view generation statuses, preferably on a per database
level. This solves the problem of the first user to generate a view that then receives no
time estimate as to when their process will be completed. I can't think of an application
use case for making replication data public.
> I spoke with Volker Mische about the implementation details on this issue and he asserted
after a code dive that it appears achievable, though the innards of the view status code were
not familiar to him.
