Bulk edit document on the server
--------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-1345
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1345
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Wish
            Reporter: Jan Lehnardt


[moved here from the wiki]

A Document Runner would provide functionality to run a transform function across all documents
in the database. This way you could do maintenance and migrations, with incurring a bunch
of http overhead.

The idea was originally floated on the couchdb-user mailing list.

Requirements

Ability to specify a job in a view-server like context (Javascript other language function)
and have it run across all docs (like a view is), but with the additional ability to write
back to the document (through the http api, so we don't have to add a socket-based update
interface).

Caveat:

We may not be able to guarantee that runner functions see each document only once, so functions
need to be aware only to modify documents that require modification.

Uses

Changing the format of a timestamp across all docs
Removing sensitive fields before replicating to another jurisdiction
(View runner... slightly different) Materializing the results of group=true reduce queries
into a dataset for further map/reduce processing (a common pattern in Hadoop)
