Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1341) calculate replication id using only db name in remote case
Date Wed, 16 Nov 2011 16:59:51 GMT


Adam Kocoloski commented on COUCHDB-1341:

Hi Filipe, I wasn't proposing that the replicator use the AuthSession cookie in making any
subsequent requests.  I agree that's asking for trouble.  I just wanted a `whoami` on the
remote server instead of relying on the username in the URL.  It also seems like it would
play more nicely with the advanced case where the user adds an Authorization header to the
replication request instead of going for the proto://user:pass@host:port syntax.

> currently if the source or target in a replication spec contains user/pwd information
it gets encoded in the id which can cause restarts if the password changes. Change it to use
just the db name as the local case does, Here's a draft[1] of a solution.
