Expected behavior

View's _show supposed to work on admin-only databases, such as _users when accessed with admin privileges.

Current behavior

On attempt to access _show on _users database error 500 raised:

    "error": "case_clause",
    "reason": "{forbidden,<<\"Only administrators can view design docs in the users database.\">>}",
    "ref": 1517023101

Possible Solution

User context need to be passed to fabric's open_doc here

Steps to Reproduce

In _users db create following two ddocs:

    "_id": "_design/users",
    "views": {
        "names": {
            "map": "function(doc) { emit(; }"
    "lists": {
        "names": "function(head, req) { var row; while (row = getRow()) { send(\"name: \" + row.key + \"\\n\"); } }"

    "_id": "_design/show-function-examples",
    "shows": {
        "summary": "function(doc, req) {return '<em>' + + '</em>';}"

Run local cluster and query with curl -u $CRED http://localhost:15984/_users/_design/show-function-examples/_show/summary/_design/users
