Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-2651) Deleting a Mango Design Docs using bulk docs
Date Fri, 27 Mar 2015 12:09:52 GMT
Robert Kowalski created COUCHDB-2651:

             Summary: Deleting a Mango Design Docs using bulk docs
                 Key: COUCHDB-2651
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: go
            Reporter: Robert Kowalski

In Fauxtont the user can list documents / indexes and select multiple of them. The user can
then press one button to delete all selected documents. 

This works for Mango created design docs, but it is quite hard to get the revision id as /_index
does not list them. Current workarounds are:

1. firing a lot of multiple requests, but given that one doc list can have 100 entries this
is not a viable solution:

curl -XGET "http://localhost:8000/animaldb/_design/e4d338e5d6f047749f5399ab998b4fa04ba0c816"

2. Querying all the design docs with includedocs, and don't use the _index endpoint, then
filter out all all indexes which are not mango indexes and use the result for building the
list of documents which then can get checked and deleted (downside: performance, not using
the existing endpoint from mango which makes it a bit obsolete, at least for Fauxton)

For me there are two possible solutions:

 - returning the rev id in GET /_index
 - implementing an additional POST /_bulk_index endpoint

while I would prefer the first as the _bulk_docs endpoint already exists and works very well.
