How to enable content search in a branch? As of tool searches only in trunk for SVN repositiories

Following lines say that by default search works only for trunk? Is there is admin functionality where we can extend it to branches also?



  • Contents — Files must be non-binary, less than 5MB, and for SVN repositories, on trunk only. Only HEAD/tip revisions are searched. For older revisions, use the added/removed text search criteria.

Hi @Harinath Nallabolu,

I am afraid FishEye only indexes HEAD/tip revisions content, to save disk space and keep indexing time reasonable.  It is not possible to enable indexing of other branches/tags.

But please notice all the diffs (even those from non HEAD/tip revisions) are indexed, so if you search for particular text, diff search would show you all the branches it was added or removed.

Hope that helps,
