Output of `sudo grep type=AVC /var/log/audit/audit.log`
Description of problem:
After installing couchdb in F20, when starting the service you get SELinux alerts. The web UI runs, but the internal self-test fails.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sudo systemctl start couchdb
Browse to http://127.0.0.1:5984/_utils/verify_install.html and choose to verify your installation.
Three alerts in the SELinux Alert Browser
All operations succeed.
Output of `sudo grep type=AVC /var/log/audit/audit.log` attached. That output suggests there may be a conflict with my install of docker-io?
chcon -t couchdb_exec_t /usr/lib64/erlang/erts-5.10.4/bin/beam.smp
and restarting couchdb seems to fix this but will likely break rabbitmq.
So I will call it a temporary workaround.
rabbitmq_beam_t is allowed to bind and connect to couchdb's ports and to manage files but does not have all privileges couchdb_t has.
I'm seeing similar issues on Fedora 21 with a fresh install of CouchDB without RabbitMQ.
Please see attachments.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
