Apache CouchDB

Version 23.4.8843

Apache CouchDB

You can use the Apache CouchDB connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Apache CouchDB and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Apache CouchDB, you first must establish a connection to Apache CouchDB. Follow these steps to connect Apache CouchDB to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the Apache CouchDB row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • URL - Enter the URL of your Apache CouchDB instance (for example, http://localhost:5984).

    • Auth Scheme - Select your authentication scheme below to proceed to the relevant section for your scheme. Then fill out the settings as specified in that section.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)


  1. For the Basic scheme, specify these settings:

    • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to your Apache CouchDB account.

    • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to your Apache CouchDB account.

  2. Complete the remaining steps.


  1. For the None scheme, enter a comma-separated list of public databases (in the Public Databases field) that you want to list as tables.

  2. Complete the remaining steps.
