Subject [jira] [Reopened] (COUCHDB-1141) Docs deleted via PUT or POST do not have contents removed.
Date Wed, 27 Apr 2011 15:44:03 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1141?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Robert Newson reopened COUCHDB-1141:
------------------------------------


Instead of stripping potentially valuable data posted to a document with _deleted:true;

1) the full document body will be returned when requested. The status code will still be 404
and the body will contain _deleted:true, either of which are generic tests for whether a document
is deleted.
2) A new view option will be added called include_deletes, allowing views to be built out
of whatever information was stored along with the deletion request.

Part 1 is not compatible with 1.0 which returns a body of {not_found:deleted}. This must be
included in the API Changes or Breaking Changes section of the release nodes for 1.2

A separate ticket should be created to address the behavior of bulkRemove in jquery.couch.js
which does not adhere to best practices in the light of this feature.

> If a doc is deleted via -X DELETE, the resulting doc contains only id/rev_deleted:true.
However, if a doc is deleted via PUT or POST, through adding _deleted:true, the entire contents
of the doc remains stored. Even after compaction, the original document contents remain.
> This issue is causing databases with large docs to become bloated over time, as the original
doc contents remain in the database even after being deleted.
