Subject Re: [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1453) Replicator fails with use_users_db = false
Date Tue, 03 Apr 2012 00:46:36 GMT
I read this gist before creating the ticket. The documentation states 
that it *can contain user_ctx. No indication that this is required if I 
have use_users_db = false. I'm not sure that this isn't a bug as, it 
requires a component to use the baked in _users auth stuff, even though 
I've intentionally configured my database to not use this. This is a 
change in behavior from what I've expected with couchdb in the past. So 
now, even if I have use_users_db = false, I still have to be aware of 
how _users works to understand implications of permissions failures.
