Why is Bamboo VCS Tagging Tasks erroring on authentication?

I've setup a simple tutorial job to test and verify how we're going to use Bamboo in our OnDemand environment. I am able to get the source code pull task and build tasks working, but can't get the VCS Tagging task to work with the following error.

com.atlassian.bamboo.task.TaskException: Exception when tagging repository

I cannot find any configuration around enabling Bamboo access to Fisheye SVN and since these are integrated with OnDemand I'm not sure why this error should occur

stopped using SVN, so doesn't matter now

Hi Mike,

It seems like a misconfiguration of your SVN URL. If you still need help, please open a Support request under OnDemand project and let us know the Project/Plan name for which you want to configure the source code checkout. Also, let us know what that plan is supposed to do - what you are trying to achieve.


I am having this problem. Any solution/workaround? It is working fine for checkouts/updates but not for tagging. Please help

I changed repository type to Subversio (it was FishEye) and it worked.
