Description From Perry Krug 2010-10-21 05:32:42 (-) [reply] Private

In the 1.0.3 product we gave the administrator the ability to flush a bucket by
pressing a button in the UI. This came up again in the forums but it is not
available in the 1.6 product.

Please add this functionality back in. The rest call is:
POST /pools/default/buckets/default/controller/doFlush

I agree that it's useful. But it's a bit more than just enabling it in GUI. And
P5 doesn't seem appropriate.

Making sure Sharon and Frank have it on radar.

is http://dropup.net/yga53-gzeic1.png.html what we want?

I think that looks pretty slick actually ;-)

+1 from me...if no one else responds, DO IT!
Comment by Jason Sirota [ 09/May/11 ]
+1 that will do nicely, thank you.

api is exposed through REST in 1.7.0
Comment by Perry Krug [ 12/May/11 ]
We still need the button in the UI.
Comment by Aleksey Kondratenko [ 12/May/11 ]
Perry still wants it. We don't want to expose it to all customers though because it kills all data.

It was proposed to enable it only if something like ?enableFlush=yes is appended to index.html.

REST side is ready. It's just a matter of making HTML/CSS and doing POST on click.
Comment by Perry Krug [ 12/May/11 ]
I think we should enable it always and have a quick dialog box that pops up warning the user.

Reopening this for Membase buckets as well...not necessarily implying a priority.
Comment by Perry Krug [ 05/Jun/11 ]
Appending ?enableFlush=yes to index.html would be appropriate here since we don't want to support flushing Membase buckets in production, but it's useful in test situations.
