XDCR API

    +
    The XDCR REST API is used to manage Cross Datacenter Replication (XDCR) operations.

    Description

    Cross Datacenter Replication (XDCR) configuration automatically replicates data between clusters and between data buckets. When using XDCR, the source and destination clusters are specified. A source cluster is the cluster from where you want to copy data. A destination cluster is the cluster where you want the replica data to be stored. When configuring replication, specify your selections for an individual cluster using Couchbase Web Console. XDCR replicates data between specific buckets and specific clusters and replications can be configured to be either uni-directional or bi-directional. Uni-directional replication means that XDCR replicates from a source to a destination. Bi-directional replication means that XDCR replicates from a source to a destination and also replicates from the destination to the source.
