Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-2343) /_config/admins/username fails on master
Date Tue, 30 Sep 2014 14:21:33 GMT
Joan Touzet created COUCHDB-2343:

             Summary: /_config/admins/username fails on master
                 Key: COUCHDB-2343
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: HTTP Interface
            Reporter: Joan Touzet

In a multi-node setup, calling _config/admins/username to create an admin user fails to correctly
configure a cluster with a new administrator. This fails for two reasons:

1) The call is only processed on a single node, and the admin entry is not replicated
2) Even if the call is repeated on all nodes manually, the hashes will be different on each
node, which will cause cookie failure when attempting to authenticate via other machines.
