Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1687) HEAD requests on all valid _design/doc endpoints (particularly _update)
Date Wed, 06 Mar 2013 20:52:15 GMT
Benjamin Young created COUCHDB-1687:

             Summary: HEAD requests on all valid _design/doc endpoints (particularly _update)
                 Key: COUCHDB-1687
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: HTTP Interface
            Reporter: Benjamin Young

I began building an update handler to "catch" webhook POSTs, but found that some--like
to be sure the endpoint exists--so they do a HEAD request--before they send content via POST.

However, hitting an _update/handler with HEAD generates a 500 Internal Server Error currently.

Additionally, I found that _view/* URL's actually send the full content body to HEAD requests.

I'd love to see _update & _view (and all the others) respond correctly to HEAD requests.
