Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1357) Authentication failure after updating password in user document
Date Tue, 06 Dec 2011 22:22:39 GMT
Authentication failure after updating password in user document

                 Key: COUCHDB-1357
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.1.1
            Reporter: Filipe Manana

>From the report at the users mailing list:

Seems like after updating the password in a user doc, the user is not able to login with the
new password unless Couch is restarted. Sounds like a caching issue.
The only case of getting the cache consistent with the _users database content is if the _users
database processes crash and after the crash user documents are updated. The cache daemon
is ignoring the database crash.

The following patch updates the daemon to monitor the _users database and crash (letting the
supervisor restart it) if the database process crashes.
Etap test included.

This might be related to COUCHDB-1212.
