Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1303) Add a _bulk_update handler similar to _update but for bulk document changes
Date Mon, 09 Dec 2013 16:38:08 GMT


Benjamin Young commented on COUCHDB-1303:

No, this would (if built) handle multiple documents sent in likely in a format similar to
what {{_bulk_docs}} receives and process them in the same manner, but with a JS function sitting
in front.

The "wrapper" comment was merely about the JS function wrapping the Erlang that does the {{_bulk_docs}}
processing. Nothing more, and certainly with no requirements outside of CouchDB.

There are ways (like what you describe) to get close to that now, but that conversation's
best for the user's email list. Thanks!

> _update handlers are great (and getting better!) for building RESTful API's inside CouchDB.
One limitation I found tonight is that _update can only do a single document at a time. If
the API I'm building needs to update multiple docs (in a similar fashion to _bulk_docs), then
an outside "proxy" script is required. It would be ideal to have a _bulk_update handler to
allow for the same functionality as _update, but with the ability to insert multiple documents
at once.
> Perhaps the current _update handler API could be extended to support multiple IDs/documents,
but a separate API endpoint would be seem reasonable if needed.
> Thanks for considering this idea.
