Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1534) Objects allowed for query_params in /_replicator but not /_replicate
Date Fri, 14 Sep 2012 02:56:09 GMT


Paul Joseph Davis commented on COUCHDB-1534:

Looking over the code I don't really even see a reason for this function to exist. Seems awfully
limiting and its not really checking for validity of anything possibly used later in replicator
code. I'd just go ahead and delete the whole thing and not bother with this at all.

> Using the replicator DB, I can set a `query_params` value to an arbitrary JSON object.
CouchDB passes is as-is to filter functions as `req.query`, no problemo.
> But the same parameters in a POST body to /_replicate are rejected because the value
is not a string.
> Is this just a vestigial data sanitization routine? I think it is. I have a commit to
remove it, used by an Iris Couch customer, and I will make a branch with this ticket ID to
add some unit tests to make sure.
