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

kowsik commented on COUCHDB-1089:
---------------------------------

Bad idea. I've got a bunch of Couch's on EC2 and *do not* want anyone to access anything on
these Couch's. I have the require_valid_user set to true with the assumption that everything's
locked down. While EC2 security groups help, I'll sleep better knowing that Couch is not going
to reveal anything to anyone without the required credentials.

> 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.
