The right settings for SVN symbolic rules

Is there a way to make Fisheye and Crucible only show branches/tags for the selected project?

Our SVN repository uses the standard projectName/branches/branchName structure.

When i first added it to Fisheye, I checked "Use built-in symbolic rules", and set the "and then apply..." menu to "None". This was according to the instructions here.

But when I view the changelog for my repository, the "All branches and tags" menu shows branches/tags from all projects, not just the one I'm viewing. And in Crucible, under "add branches to the review", it also shows branches from all projects.

So I tried changing the "and then apply..." menu to the second option (/project/trunk... etc.). With this, the menu lists branches like "projectName-branchName". Is this the desired result? It still shows branches from all projects, not just the selected one.

I'm not sure how this is supposed to work.

From your description I understand all your projects are under the same SVN repository, is this right?

In this case I think what you want to achieve should be possible if you add each project as a separate repository in FishEye. For instance, let's say you have PROJECT1 and PROJECT2 as follows:

  • /path/to/repository/PROJECT1
  • /path/to/repository/PROJECT2
  • You could add these as separate repositories in FishEye. I think the repository you currently have added has the path /path/to/repository. To add a repository just for PROJECT1 you could add a repository to FishEye named PROJECT1, then restrict the scope for this setting the Repository URL as being /path/to/repository/PROJECT1, or Repository URL as being /path/to/repository and Path as being PROJECT1. The way this will be set depends on what's your Repository Root. A svn info /path/to/repository/PROJECT1 command should help you identifying what should be the Repository Root, which will be put as the Repository URL. The rest goes then as the Path.

Yeah, that's the conclusion I came to as well. It seems like multi-project repositories aren't a good idea in Fisheye for this reason. It might be a good idea to document that.
