Crucible third-party SCM plugin renders file incorrectly


I have a UTF-8 source file with Japanese text in a 3rd-party SCM supported by a LightSCM plugin. 

When it is rendered in Crucible, it is displayed with CP windows-1252, so all the text is garbled.

Is there any way in the Crucible plugin framework to control the file (or repository's) character set?  

I fetch the source file and write it out as UTF-8 to the OutputStream in com.atlassian.crucible.scm.SCMRepository.getFileAsString

The file also has the UTF-8 BOM 0xEF,0xBB,0xBF.


I'm using 4.5.3 (64-bit) and even tried this old solution to no avail:

Hi @Joseph Koral,

If you did not try this already, can you try setting the sun.jnu.encoding explicitly to UTF-8 in the $FISHEYE_OPTS Environment variables?


This would be the syntax:



We have an open feature request to have this setting enabled by default:

FE-6908 - Set sun.jnu.encoding to UTF-8 by default

Thanks @Caterina Curti _Kate_, I have tried that option, without any luck.
