Apache CouchDB

Version 24.1.8910

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.

Add the Apache CouchDB Connector

To enable Sync to use data from Apache CouchDB, you first must add the connector, as follows:

  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 to open the New Connection page. If the Configure Connection icon is not available, click the Download Connector icon to install the Apache CouchDB connector. For more information about installing new connectors, see Connections.

Authenticate to Apache CouchDB

After you add the connector, you need to set the required properties.

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

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

CData Sync supports authenticating to Apache CouchDB in several ways. Select your authentication method below to proceed to the relevant section that contains the authentication details.


To connect with your user credentials, set the following properties:

  • Auth Scheme: Select Basic.

  • 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.


To connect without authentication, select None for Auth Scheme. Although you are connecting without authentication, you must specify the Public Databases property, which is a comma-separated list of public databases to list as tables.

## Complete Your Connection

To complete your connection:

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

  2. Click Create & Test to create your connection.
