Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1524) replication requires write on source
Date Thu, 16 Aug 2012 15:33:38 GMT
Simon Metson created COUCHDB-1524:

             Summary: replication requires write on source
                 Key: COUCHDB-1524
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Replication
    Affects Versions: 1.2
            Reporter: Simon Metson

Replication requires write permissions on the source DB to store check pointing info, if it
doesn't have write it returns:

{"error":"checkpoint_commit_failure","reason":"Failure on source commit: {error,<<\"unauthorized\">>}"}

This results in a partial replication (e.g. changes up until the first check point make it
across) and breaks a fairly common use case; having a read only DB that people can replicate
to their own server for writes.

I think either this message should become a warning (assuming it's safe to ignore) or a different
permissions model is needed for checkpoints.
