Subject [DISCUSS] Minor replicator error reporting API change
Date Fri, 20 Dec 2019 18:33:04 GMT
Hi everyone,

Before 3.0 goes out, I wanted to propose a minor replicator
_scheduler/* API change.

Currently when a replication job is crashing it reports the error as a
string in the "info" field. So that that "info" field can be null, a
string, or an object with various replication stats.

The proposal is to turn the string into an object as well with an
"error' field. So instead of

   "info": "some error message"

It will look like

   "info": {"error": "some error message"}

A few reasons for this change that it's a bit more consistent, and it
should help with the some clients in static type language which have
harder time handling an object being either a string, or an object, as
opposed to a nullable fields and be different objects.

What does everything think?
