I am getting the following error when I try and start the cbq-engine against my 2.2 cb server. Is there anything I need to do to pass along a username and password?
ZEN0049p:n1ql john.blayter$ ./cbq-engine -couchbase http://127.0.0.1:8091/
08:42:29.125970 FATAL: Unable to run server, err: Unable to access site http://127.0.0.1:8091/, err: HTTP error 401 Unauthorized getting "http://127.0.0.1:8091/pools": -- main.main() at main.go:62
Have you tried:
./cbq-engine -couchbase http://username:firstname.lastname@example.org:8091/
- or -
./cbq-engine -couchbase http://bucket_name:email@example.com:8091/
I would imagine that -u and -p options exist as well, but I haven't tested this.
Note that in the Developer Preview 1, there is no support for authentication from client side. So, if you run the server with a specific set of credentials, all query clients will gain access to that bucket without requiring any authentication. This limitation is because it is a developer preview, and proper authentication will be in place in the near future.
To add to what Siri said there are actually 2 issues.
There is currently no support for querying password protected buckets (see https://www.couchbase.com/issues/browse/MB-9125)
If all your buckets are password protected, access to /pools on the server requires admin credentials (see https://www.couchbase.com/issues/browse/MB-9126)
If you add at least one non-password protected bucket you should be able to connect the query-engine, and you should be able to query this bucket.
Future releases should address these issues.
NOTE: this developer preview release is not intended to be used on production buckets
