How to rename a bucket?


From the 2.5 documentation, I see “Since buckets could be renamed and there is no way to determine the name for the default bucket for a cluster, the system attempts to connect non-SASL, non-proxied to a bucket named “default”. If it does not exist, Couchbase Server drops the connection.”

It sounds like there’s a way rename an existing bucket.

How do I do that?

hi @moon0326,

I think this is a wording problem in an old revision of the documentation, and that what was meant is that at setup time the default bucket can be created with a different name than “default”.

In latest version of the REST API doc, on you’ll see that The bucket name cannot be changed via the REST API.
SDKs clearly don’t offer this either.

Thank you simonbasle! That makes sense.
