I have a CouchDB instance where I have created an admin user, so that way only the admin user(s) can create and delete databases. I am able to create the database just fine as the admin user, but if I try to read from the db without the admin credentials, the response is a 401 with the message "You are not authorized to access this db."
If I look at the database permissions, I see that the
_admin role has been added but no other users are listed as admins or members. Therefore I would think any user should be able to read/write. Am I missing something here? I admit I'm quite a novice with CouchDB. Thanks for any help.
