svn access and passwords.

With Google backed accounts it appears that under some circumstances OnDemand stores passwords. E.g, when user changes (or admin sets) password within OnDemand. Further that svn access, e.g. svn co https://mutualmobile.jira.com/svn/SOMEPROJECT/trunk --username=some.user, uses that stored password in preference to authing against Google.

Is there a way to unset that stored password. So that, svn does auth against Google. Any other suggestions?

This is ruining SSO for us as users have to change their jira account password in addition to normal password change.

Indeed, if you have integrated OnDemand with Google Apps, there is another password to be set for OnDemand as per this documentation. This password is used for authenticating your SVN clients against OnDemand, or RSS Feed client against OnDemand. This can't be changed.

You might also want to check out https://studio.atlassian.com/browse/JST-2386 which is related to this matter. If you wish, you can also register your request in the issue tracker.
