Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1530) Add a mode to _all_docs to include deleted docs
Date Wed, 05 Sep 2012 00:35:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1530?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13448271#comment-13448271

Jens Alfke commented on COUCHDB-1530:
-------------------------------------

Note: It's possible to find the deleted documents by iterating over the database's entire
_changes feed, but it's expensive.

> There's currently no efficient way to discover the deleted documents in a database, since
_all_docs only returns active documents. It can be useful to show all documents, even deleted
ones, for troubleshooting or forensic purposes.
> I propose adding an option like "?include_deleted=true" to _all_docs that will cause
it to return deleted documents as well. To provide a way to tell deleted docs apart from active
ones (if the include_docs option isn't on), the "value" object should include a "deleted":true
property for those docs.
