Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-1089) Let anonymous users access _active_tasks for view generation estimates

Caolan McMahon commented on COUCHDB-1089:
-----------------------------------------

Only if you have 'safe rewrites' turned off or you're not behind a vhost. Getting the replication
information related to a single database at a URL accessible from the db level (rather than
the root level) would still be useful. Also, do all replications create an entry in the _replicator
database?

Dale, yes I have no idea if this is a good idea for security or not. Certainly needs thinking
about.

> Currently you have to be a database administrator to access _active_tasks. For UX purposes
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.
