Setting SVN permissions fails

Hi !

When we configure a project, if we try to change the permissions for which groups has the right to commit, as soon as we remove the developers group, no one can commit anymore.

Anyone experienced that ?

Thanks !

I just tried. I have a group called "writers" and a user named "writer" who was a member of that group. The "writer" user is licensed for FishEye (as well, as it happens, JIRA and Confluence). The user must be licensed for FishEye to use SVN.

I created a new project. I went to the Project administration and edited the FishEye permissions (/secure/admin/ProjectRepositoryPermissions.jspa?repositoryKey=xxx), added the "writers" group to the Commit panel, and removed the "developers" group.

I checked out SVN, added a file, committed it, and it worked.

You may need to wait a few minutes for the permissions to synchronize through the cache between FishEye and the SVN server, but generally it's immediate.

Hope this helps.

And as soon as I readd the developers group, it works again...

Hi Josh, thanks for the quick answer !

I just tried again, the same procedure, and when I do so (removed developers + administrators) and add a new custom group, I get the error message, it's a 403 from the repo...
