Subject Re: Separation between User and DB. (Config 1.2.0)
Date Fri, 16 Nov 2012 12:25:10 GMT
i have similar scenario (i have user-only databases, as well as
shared ones).

i use readers/members and ignore roles - they are possible backdoor -
anyone can assign hirsef a role, as long as s/he knows its name.

once a database has readers/members, noone but those (and the
admins) can access it. (readers means writing too, hence the new name

well, u should have at least one admin defined in the couch config.

i dont know if getting database names can be disabled to non-admins..
