Fisheye incorrect commiter in repository

There is an issue in our Fisheye installation that sometimes the commiter in the indexed respository is not showing the same user as in SVN repository. Can someone please advise what can be causing this issues?

The Fisheye version is 2.7.14.

Thank you.

Svnsync is not an atomic protocol. It generally performs the commit as the svn sync user and then updates the revprops to match the original commit. If FishEye sees the repository between these two operations it will see the author as the svn sync author.

One workaround for this is to tie the FishEye poll into the svn sync operation so that polling happens after the svn sync bring the repos into alignment. Alternatively you can rescan the commits to being FishEye into sync.

For further info, see https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/FISHEYE/Indexer and the rescan option for the command line tools at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/FISHEYE/Command-Line+Options

Thanks a lot, Conor! Now I understood why I have such issues and can handle the fix.

You can manually map your users in Fisheye using "user Mappings" via this screen:

Are you using svn syncing?

I know about mapping and it is working if you map the needed users but even with mapping some commits are being shown with incorrect commiter.

We are using svnsync to sync the main repository to the mirror and the mirror on the local fisheye installation is being used for indexing.
