Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1530) Add a mode to _all_docs to include deleted docs
Date Wed, 05 Sep 2012 00:33:18 GMT
Jens Alfke created COUCHDB-1530:

             Summary: Add a mode to _all_docs to include deleted docs
                 Key: COUCHDB-1530
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.2
            Reporter: Jens Alfke
            Priority: Minor

There's currently no efficient way to discover the deleted documents in a database, since
_all_docs only returns active documents. It can be useful to show all documents, even deleted
ones, for troubleshooting or forensic purposes.

I propose adding an option like "?include_deleted=true" to _all_docs that will cause it to
return deleted documents as well. To provide a way to tell deleted docs apart from active
ones (if the include_docs option isn't on), the "value" object should include a "deleted":true
property for those docs.
