Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1631) Require admin privileges to read _all_dbs
Date Tue, 18 Dec 2012 14:12:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1631?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13534911#comment-13534911

Benoit Chesneau commented on COUCHDB-1631:
------------------------------------------

What issue it is solving? 

Also already commented on your gist, but it should be made switchable for the following reason:

- This patch has a severe impact on couchapps too since it's restrain the ability to browse
multiple dbs and such.
- What about readers? Those who can read different dbs, they won't be able to read them.

 Also since it makes futon completely unsuable, I think the patch shouldn't stop it and should
also patch /_utils. 

I'm -0 about it. I would prefere a lot to have a way to filter the db list according the user
which can be on the long term more useful.

> The patch for this is straightforwards, & I think that this should actually be the
default behaviour in future. Comments?
> Note to self, docs, tests required once discussion is settled.
