Dipesh Patel updated COUCHDB-910:
---------------------------------

Attachment: patch.txt

My first stab at this. Let me know if there are any problems.
Can also find it here:

Malformed _bulk_docs post data causes a 500 function clause error
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Key: COUCHDB-910
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-910
Project: CouchDB
Issue Type: Bug
Components: HTTP Interface
Affects Versions: 1.0
Environment: Cloudant BigCouch EC2 node
Reporter: Jay Nelson
Priority: Minor
Attachments: patch.txt

Original Estimate: 48h
Remaining Estimate: 48h

The following two malformed _bulk_docs request result in errors when issued to Cloudant's BigNode cluster (however, it is fundamentally a CouchDB problem and should give the same results with a standalone CouchDB):
curl -d '{"doc": [] }' -H 'Content-Type:application/json' -X POST https://appadvice.cloudant.com/foo/_bulk_docs
{"error":"unknown_error","reason":"function_clause"}
curl -d '{"doc": [{"_id":"foo"}] }' -H 'Content-Type:application/json' -X POST https://appadvice.cloudant.com/foo/_bulk_docs
{"error":"unknown_error","reason":"function_clause"}
In both cases the error is that {"docs": [ ... ] } was not used but instead the keyword "doc" was used.
The result should be a notification of the error in the data supplied, rather than crashing the web server.
This is probably a reopening of issues related to COUCHDB-306
