In Android Couchbase Lite mobile push replication is working but pull replication is not working


#1

Couchbase Lite Mobile version - couchbase-lite-android:2.1.0-DB001.
Syngateway version - 2.0.0-832
Couchbase Server version - 5.5.0-2958
Ubuntu version - 16.04 lts

In Couchbase lite while pull replication this api is getting called internally in log files.

Request URL:http://192.168.1.109:4984/demobucket/_blipsync
whose log traces are given below.

and If I try to hit same url ie ://192.168.1.109:4984/demobucket/_blipsync in webbrowser.
Then output is

  1. Request URL:://192.168.1.109:4984/demobucket/_blipsync
  2. Request Method:GET
  3. Status Code:400 Bad Request
  4. Remote Address:192.168.1.109:4984
  5. Referrer Policy:no-referrer-when-downgrade.

And my sync_gateway.json config file is given below

{

“interface”:“0.0.0.0:4984”,
“adminInterface”:“0.0.0.0:4985”,

“shadow”: {
“server”: “://127.0.0.1:8091”,

        }

    }
}

}

Could someone please help me in pulling data from Couchbase server via syngateway in android app.


#2

You cannot access the _blipsync endpoint from a browser, as it needs to start a websocket connection (a browser is not capable of doing that). I don’t see a description of the problem here.

Hello Borrrden thanks for response,

Here is my android code for pull replication,

try {

Log.i(TAG, " PULLING DATA FROM SERVER *************************************STARTED :: ");
try {
Endpoint targetEndpoint = new URLEndpoint(new URI(“ws://192.168.1.109:4984/demobucket”));
ReplicatorConfiguration replConfigPull = new ReplicatorConfiguration(database, targetEndpoint);
replConfigPull.setReplicatorType(ReplicatorConfiguration.ReplicatorType.PULL);

// Add authentication.
replConfigPull.setAuthenticator(new BasicAuthenticator(“sync_gateway”, “dost1234”));
replConfigPull.setContinuous(true);
// Create replicator.
Replicator replicatorPull = new Replicator(replConfigPull);
replConfigPull.setContinuous(true);
// Listen to replicator change events.
replicatorPull.addChangeListener(new ReplicatorChangeListener() {
@Override
public void changed(ReplicatorChange change) {
if (change.getStatus().getError() != null)
Log.i(TAG, "Error code :: " + change.getStatus().getError().getCode());
}
});

// Start replication.
synchronized (replicatorPull) {
replicatorPull.start();

}

Log.i(TAG, " PULLING DATA FROM SERVER *************************************End :: ");
}catch (URISyntaxException e){}

} catch (Exception e) {
Log.i(TAG, "Error in Pull Function :: ", e);

}
}

Here is the log trace files while pulling data from couchbase server via sync_gateway.

It looks pull replication is working fine, but I couldn’t see updated data in my mobile database

Please have a look.


#4

Is the guest user turned on for sync gateway?


#5

Yes, No It is turned off,

Here my sync_gateway.json config file.

{
“log”:[“CRUD+”, “REST+”, “Changes+”, “Attach+”,“HTTP+”],
“interface”:“0.0.0.0:4984”,
“adminInterface”:“0.0.0.0:4985”,
“compressResponses”:false,
“databases”: {
“demobucket”: {
“server”:“http://127.0.0.1:8091”,
“sync”:function (doc) { if (doc) { channel(doc.channel); } },
“username”:“Administrator”,
“password”:“dost1234”,
“users”: {
“GUEST”: {
“disabled”: true,
“admin_channels”: [“public”]
},
“sync_gateway”:{
“password”:“dost1234”,
“admin_channels”: [“sumit”]
}

        },
   "unsupported": {
    	"replicator_2": true
  	    },
    "enable_shared_bucket_access":true,
        "import_docs":"continuous",
    "shadow": {
          "server": "http://127.0.0.1:8091",
          "bucket": "demobucket"
          
        }

    }
}

}


#6

Looks like the config has changed since last time. Is ‘sumit’ present in the channels property of any docs? If not you won’t have access to pull them.


#7

Yes, I do have alots of documents in couchbase server including ‘sumit’ as channel
for eg {
“channel”: “sumit”,
“language”: “Java”,
“type”: “SDK”,
“version”: 2,
“_rev”: “2-ca8b6b1f6928fec812e3e9462628b4271c77f0c7”,
“_id”: “433d97cc-cb4a-4815-a585-ec96befee82d”
}

But still such data is not replicating to my android app. But if I save any data from android app it is getting replicated in couchbase server.

Just for your reference I’m sharing some code of android app where pull replication code is written. Do I need to set channel some where in pull replication mechanism?

private static void pullDataFromSrver(Database database) {
try {

        Log.i(TAG, " PULLING DATA FROM SERVER *************************************STARTED ::  ");
        try {
            Endpoint targetEndpoint = new URLEndpoint(new URI("ws://192.168.1.109:4984/demobucket"));
            ReplicatorConfiguration replConfigPull = new ReplicatorConfiguration(database, targetEndpoint);
            replConfigPull.setReplicatorType(ReplicatorConfiguration.ReplicatorType.PULL);

            // Add authentication.
            replConfigPull.setAuthenticator(new BasicAuthenticator("sync_gateway", "dost1234"));
            replConfigPull.setContinuous(true);
            // Create replicator.
            Replicator replicatorPull = new Replicator(replConfigPull);
            replConfigPull.setContinuous(true);
            // Listen to replicator change events.
            replicatorPull.addChangeListener(new ReplicatorChangeListener() {
                @Override
                public void changed(ReplicatorChange change) {
                    if (change.getStatus().getError() != null)
                        Log.i(TAG, "Error code ::  " + change.getStatus().getError().getCode());
                }
            });

            // Start replication.
            synchronized (replicatorPull) {
                replicatorPull.start();

            }

            Log.i(TAG, " PULLING DATA FROM SERVER *************************************End ::  ");
        }catch (URISyntaxException e){}

    } catch (Exception e) {
        Log.i(TAG, "Error in Pull Function ::  ", e);

    }
}

#8

No, you shouldn’t have to set the channel. The default is to pull all documents that the user has access to. if you directly query the _changes endpoint in the browser (http://192.168.1.109:4984/demobucket/_changes) do you see any entries there?


#9

This is What shown on in webbrowser after hitting above url.

{“results”:[
{“seq”:2,“id”:"_user/sync_gateway",“changes”:[]}
,{“seq”:65,“id”:“2dd3d423-9cd9-4ac2-8afc-29aecc70aa8a”,“removed”:["!"],“changes”:[{“rev”:“4-a438bce6a589975dd325ba1239c3c390”}]}
],
“last_seq”:“65”}


#10

Then it looks like there is something going wrong with your sync function (you don’t have access to view any changes). Have you changed it recently? @bbrks Is there a procedure to follow if you change the config?


#11

I’ve already shared sync_gateway.config file in my first text. From my end sync_gateway.config file is correct. It would be great If you could help me out to get the bottel neck of issue


#12

Oh, I had another look at the config. You don’t need to (and should not) use any bucket shadowing, and instead you should be hitting ws://192.168.1.109:4984/sync_gateway which is your main sync gateway bucket.
