Help needed with sync_gateway


#1

Hello,

We meant to setup our sync_gateway as a read only gateway, to replicate few documents to mobile clients. We noticed that a lot of clients are posting requests into /_local/ saving their data onto the server. We tried different ways to stop this but we were not lucky to to solve it.

Please, if anybody can refer on how to create a sync_gateway setting to resolve our demand on this.

The _local requests are not client data, but replication metadata used by the library. You don’t need to worry about them (they are essential).

Unless you mean that your clients are actually sending requests to _local as a way to try to save data forcibly (i.e. without the Couchbase Lite library)?
