Time for action — accessing a database with security enabled

Let's quickly try to access a database that has security enabled by passing the username and password with our request.

  1. Open Terminal.
  2. View all of the documents saved in the _users database by running the following command. Replace username and password with your admin's username and password.
    curl username:password@localhost:5984/_users/_all_docs
    
    
  3. Terminal will respond with the same data that you saw before you added the authentication.
    {
    "_id": "org.couchdb.user:your_username",
    "_rev": "1-b9af54a7cdc392c2c298591f0dcd81f3",
    "name": "your_username",
    "password_sha": "3bc7d6d86da6lfed6d4d82e1e4d1c3ca587aecc8",
    "roles": [],
    "salt": "9812acc4866acdec35c903f0cc072c1d",
    "type": "user"
    }
