Subject Re: auto delete docs
Date Thu, 30 Aug 2012 16:03:39 GMT
Sure, you can use _bulk_docs and send a json doc like: 

{
  "docs": [
    {"_id": "expired_doc_0", "_rev": "1-62657917", "_deleted": true},
    {"_id": "expired_doc_1", "_rev": "1-2089673485", "_deleted": true},
    {"_id": "expired_doc_2", "_rev": "1-2063452834", "_deleted": true}
  ]
}
