Unable to connect to SVN via OnDemand using Google Apps

My SVN repository has the checkout command listed up top:

svn checkout https://myaccount.jira.com/svn/GTV/trunk GTV --username myname

However, when I execute that from the command line, I get :

Authentication realm: <https://myaccount.jira.com:443> Subversion Repository
Password for 'myname': ******************

And the password is not accepted.

Note that my authentication is managed through Google Apps, which is how I set up OnDemand.

I have tried both 'myname' and 'myname@mydomain.com'

Your SVN account is managed through OnDemand account that for Gapps users is created from the mail without domain ('myname' rather than 'myname@@mydomain.tld'). Please note that your OnDemand account is totally independent from Gapps: you can log in to Jira without Gapps. There is just an association between Google and OnDemand accounts so you actually have 2 accounts. The first time you login to OnDemand from Gapps the system asks for a OnDemand password: that is the actual password for the account used also for svn. Don't mind if you don't remember your password just try to login to OnDemand without Gapps and follow "Can't access your account?" link. You'll get in the reset password procedure.
