Adding a SVN repository (with integrated Windows Authentication) into FishEye+Crucible

I recently setup FishEye+Crucible to evaluate it for integration with SVN and JIRA. For the past 2 days I've nearly tore all of my hair out trying to simply add a repository.

We're using the Enterprise Edition of VisualSVN Server with Windows Authentication enabled, which is where I'm suspecting the problem is coming from.

Does anyone have any experiance of this issue?

Hi James,

you might be hitting this known issue related to NTLM authentication to VisualSVN.

Please watch it and vote for it. In the meantime you could try switching to basic authentication in VisualSVN.

Hi Lukasz,

Yes that seems to have resolved it, thanks for your time and help.

Hi James,

I have some experience with VisualSVN and large SVN repos (500000+ revisions). My issue was that I never came by the initial index due to timeouts :-( There were no issues with the actual authentication.

What I understood back then was the fact that VisualSVN didn't support any other protocol than http(s) which is the slowest of protocols. What we would like at that time was to utilize the faster ssh protocol. But it was not possible.

One way to solve this issue would be to mirror the VisualSVN repos to an SVN instance on the FE server and run the indexing against these SVN repos. Then you can use the fastest file-protocol. Setup the mirroring to synch every 5 minutes and your FE will be almost in real-time.

What are your specific issues?

Hi Svante,

Thanks for your response.

So I'm trying to add a SVN repository into FE, with the following error:

"Unable to get info for the repository root for [REPO]

"SVN:E170001 Negotiate authentication failed: 'No valid credentials provided.'"

For the permissions of the repository I most definitely have the username I'm using to add the repository with added (with full access permissions). Using Windows Authentication with VisualSVN Server, do I need to add the domain to the username, e.g. domain\user?

Also FE is on the same server as VisualSVN.
