Started getting 'invalid revision range' error in Fisheye

We've been using Fisheye for months with no problem and all of a sudden at the end of last week I started getting this error that prevents commit indexing:

Invalid revision range 31921deb48c0cddf0dae5da65d902b6641240ebb..9cb88779882114323fac26a1f41db7fc42e1b5f2

com.atlassian.utils.process.ProcessException: While executing: "git rev-list --reverse --date-order 31921deb48c0cddf0dae5da65d902b6641240ebb..9cb88779882114323fac26a1f41db7fc42e1b5f2 "

We're using a Git repository and as far as I know, there were no configuration changes to the repository itself. Any guidance as to what I should look for or where I should go would be helpful. Thanks a lot.

Hi Dave,

The command which is failing is:

git rev-list --reverse --date-order 31921deb48c0cddf0dae5da65d902b6641240ebb..9cb88779882114323fac26a1f41db7fc42e1b5f2

Can you try to run that command directly on the commandline client, to see if it also raises an error?

If the command runs fine, then probably the repository cache in FishEye has got corrupted somehow (maybe due to an earlier crash, out of memory problem, full harddisk, etc.).

To fix this:

  1. Stop FishEye
  2. Delete the <FISHEYE_INST>/var/cache/<reponame> directory, where <reponame> is the name of the repository that's causing the error
  3. Restart FishEye with the --debugcommand line option
  4. Let the index complete

If the problem persists after these suggestions, please create a support ticket.
