Subject [jira] [Resolved] (COUCHDB-1484) Document _id length overflow
Date Mon, 30 Jul 2012 14:19:35 GMT


Robert Newson resolved COUCHDB-1484.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

While I don't think it's very sensible to have document identifiers of these lengths, unless
there is something that becomes impossible, I don't think we should do anything.

Since documents can be created, updated, deleted, and retrieved using a POST call, I don't
think this is a problem (and certainly not a release blocking issue).

Reopen if you've encountered more serious errors with very long identifiers other than encountering
the practical URI length limit of your user agent.

> CouchDB allows to create document with ids longer that max length of URL (avg. 2000 chars).
Such documents are unavailable for GET/HEAD/DELETE requests.  However, you still able to operate
with them via POST/PUT requests, views and replication works fine for them.
