How Do I Perform an SVN Relocate on a Crucible SVN Repository?


Wondering what the recommended approach is for the following situation:

  1. Crucible is configured to monitor an existing SVN repository accessible at
  2. The repository has been 'stopped' via the Crucible admin UI.
  3. The SVN repository has been migrated to
    1. Same exact UUID and history as when it was hosted at domainA.
  4. The SVN repo on domainA is no longer accessible.

How can I update my Crucible repository's URL without incurring a full re-index? The SVN client utility provides a simple relocate command for this situation. Looking to accomplish the same in Crucible.

To answer my own question, all I had to do was change the SVN URL and Checkout URL from the SCM Details configuration pane on the Repository admin page. I hit 'Test Connection', it worked, saved, and restarted the repository. Everything worked as expected.

As a note to anyone else possibly looking to do this in the future: I'm going to guess that it is imperative that you first verify that your new repository has the same UUID as the old one. The svnadmin setuuid tool can help with this from the server-side.
