Proxy Authentication

I would like to use proxy authentication in CouchDB. To do this, I would need to edit some config settings that I am currently told are read-only (even with an admin account) such as:

httpd.authentication_handlers
couch_httpd_auth.secret
couch_httpd_auth.proxy_use_secret

Would it be possible to enable the writability of these settings by an admin account, such as one listed in local.ini?

  • Is there any plans in the iris couch roadmap to provide proxy support of some kind of secure authentication? I think that sending HTTP request with plain username and password is really bad without SSL. I think it will be a great add-on and will encourage people to use iris couch instead of other products.

    Also, is there a way to make the overview window in futon private? I dont like the idea that ppl can look at my databases name..
