Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1511) Error message provides no help: Uncaught server error: {case_clause,{[]}}
Date Sun, 08 Jul 2012 17:42:34 GMT
Isaac Z. Schlueter created COUCHDB-1511:

             Summary: Error message provides no help: Uncaught server error: {case_clause,{[]}}
                 Key: COUCHDB-1511
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.2
            Reporter: Isaac Z. Schlueter

When PUTing a _users doc, if you forget the `roles:[]` field, you get this error, which doesn't
help figure out the problem at all.

1. _users docs should get a role:[] and type:"user" by default if these fields are missing.
2. If there is an error in the _users doc, it should say "Invalid user document", or something
else indicating that the problem happened because the data was bad (and not, say, because
the server is crashing or views are messed up, or whatever else can happen in this crazy world.)
