Deleted subversion repositories are not really gone


We have been evaluating JIRA/FishEye OnDemand by doing some trial ticket and code migrations from our current ticketing/source control system.

Now that we are ready to do the final imports, we have deleted our test JIRA projects and associated FishEye/Subversion repositories using these steps ( and are preparing to re-import them from scratch but we are encoutering the following issues:


  • Can we re-import our projects using the same codes as before? We really want to use those codes and not have to come up with new ones
  • If not, can someone help us actually really delete the old subversion repositories so that we can trully re-import them?

Thank you in advance for your time.

Hi George,

If you still facing this problem, please raise a support ticket at . We need to perform some manual procedures on your Subversion server.
