subversion commits from JIRA?


I'm trying to find a way of reducing scope of mistakes when committing to SVN and manually entering the JIRA ID in the commit. I was hoping be able to select a JIRA from a dropdown menu (either in JIRA or in a seperate svn client that communicates with JIRA) as part of the commit process. I stumbled across JIRASvn but that doesn't seem to be supprted any more - I got that from github and installed I can't seem to get it working.

Surely I can't be the first person wanting to do this ? 

Just to clarify - not just viewing previous commits that I want to see- I can see this from Fisheye. I'm trying to find a way to make it easier for developers to select a JIRA as part of the commit process,

Any help gratefully received smile

The best way I can think of this is to create a pre-commit hook script for your SVN repository. There are so many examples in the web and a svn hook script is relatively easy to maintain.

Commit Policy Plugin works on the server-side (not in the client-side), thus it does not assist in the way you expected, but it surely reject mis-typed issue keys.

It won't make the process easier, but it will make that safer. Give it a try.
