Subject Re: CDCR Alias support?
Date Fri, 12 May 2017 18:17:02 GMT
The CDCR request handler doesn't support aliases.
The source and target collections listed in the replica must be
collections, nothing happens if they are aliases for a collection. No
errors anywhere, just nothing.

If a non-existent collection is listed I see errors, with an alias it just
doesn't do anything. It should either work or throw an error
