I have deployed a sync gateway and couchbase server through the Azure store installation (BYOL since development/demo machine, not production). This creates two totally empty instances (no problem here).
I setup a bucket and user on the Couchbase server side, the user has full access to the bucket and read-only admin rights, as described in the tutorial (https://developer.couchbase.com/documentation/mobile/2.0/installation/sync-gateway/index.html). However, the tutorial then assumes a very low level (virtual) machine access that I don’t have on my deployment to configure the connection to the bucket. As such I tried creating the database through the rest api (put on /demo). This however gives me the response
“reason”: “no such database “demo””
I am pretty confident in the json, since it is based on the one I used to set-up the same configuration (server + sync gateway) on my local dev machine through docker. You can view the anonymized version hereunder:
Could anybody point me to what I a doing wrong, or give me an alternative solution to setup the database connection on the sync gateway?
I am using sync gateway 2.0 with couchbase server 5.1.1.
