Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1229) _update handler doesn't support slashes in doc _id
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2011 22:45:58 GMT


Christopher Bonhage commented on COUCHDB-1229:

I encountered this as well; digging through src/couch_httpd_show.erl, handle_doc_show_req/3
appears to handle the "/" character in Document IDs properly:

DocParts = [DocId|Rest],
DocId1 = ?l2b(string:join([?b2l(P)|| P <- DocParts], "/")),

It seems like a bug that the _show handler joins the path parts back together, but the _update
handler does not.

Obviously / is an important character in URL paths, but I don't see how that affects the trailing
path parts here: database/_design/ddoc/_update/handler/docidpart1/docidpart2

Am I wrong?

> Let's say you have:
> - a doc with _id foo/bar
> - a show function named baz
> - a update function named baz
> Then _show/baz/foo/bar is valid but _update/baz/foo/bar is not. Only _update/baz/foo%2Fbar
> This is particularly annoying when you want to rewrite /something/* to _update/baz/foo/*
(rewriting /something/* to _show/baz/foo/* works perfectly).
