No available N1QL nodes error



Trying out the new SDK. Normal GET/INSERT op works but i cant get the N1QL Execution to work. The CLI cbq works as normal with N1QL queries on my cluster. I have also tried various connection strings/IP on ports on the connect method.

Searched the net and the nodejs SDK seems to have a “enable” method on buckets to enable n1ql nodes. For some reason the N1qlEps() in the agent packages failes to find any nodes or am i missing something (see a simple test below)?

package main

import (

func main() {

cluster, err := gocb.Connect("couchbase://localhost:8091/")
if err != nil {
	log.Fatalf("Error connecting:  %v", err)

users, err := cluster.OpenBucket("activity", "")
if err != nil {
	log.Fatalf("Error open bucket:  %v", err)

var dummy interface{}
users.Get("icamovie_98392", &dummy)

query := gocb.NewN1qlQuery("SELECT * FROM activity")

rows, err := users.ExecuteN1qlQuery(query, nil)
if err != nil {

var row interface{}
for rows.Next(&row) {
	fmt.Printf("Row: %+v\n", row)


Hey Lundin,

What version of Couchbase Server are you using? The support for N1QL inside the Go SDK works only with Couchbase Server 4.0 which has N1QL integrated in the overall Server Package.

Cheers, Brett


Hi Brett!

Thanks for the reply, and nice work with the SDK!
The version is indeed 4.0, v.4.0.0-4047 on both machines. I have created the indexes using cbq tool
Definition: CREATE PRIMARY INDEX #primary ON activity USING GSI
Definition: CREATE INDEX subjectsid ON activity(subject_id) USING GSI

The panic msg is below as well as the error message.
No available N1QL nodes.

Hi again!

Sorry seems to be my misstake (or at least easily solvable) i simply removed the port from the connection string and then it found the topology so it seems because now it works!
