JIRA 6.4 to JIRA Software upgrade issue with CVS

After this upgrade, I now get the following error when trying to view the Version Control tab:

"Error rendering 'com.atlassian.jira.jira-cvs-plugin:cvs-tabpanel'"

I'm sure this is related to the CVS opensource plugin I had to use since JIRA stopped supporting CVS after version 6.1. Does anyone have any idea how to get CVS working again, other than the "Purchase Fisheye" answer?

I hacked on the plugin source enough to get it working with JIRA 7.  You can download my modified plugin here:

Warning: This is my first time building a JIRA plugin or using git. It requires JIRA Software 7.0.  It will not work with JIRA 6.x.

I was able to download it without issue and am checking it out now. It seems to be working fine! Thanks so much, Adam.

Saved my day as well. We are using it with JIRA 7.1.7
Thanks a lot !

Hi Adam,
I hope you are still out there - I'm using your version 1.2_dev of the jira-cvs-plugin.
It's working just great. Now some of the cvs projects which are currently configured in the cvs-plugin have been moved away from cvs to git. Since there are a number of errors in the log now I'd like to remove those projects from the cvs-plugin. I haven't found a "remove" button nor a suitable database table where the data is stored.
Can you point me to a right place (if any).
Thanks - Christoph

I see the problem. You can add or edit modules (Administration -> Add-ons -> CVS Modules) but there is no way to remove them.

The plugin will only allow you to delete a module if it is not used in any projects, but I couldn't get this to work. I removed a module from all projects and still couldn't delete it.

Honestly I don't understand how the plugin works, but I will see what I can do.

Hi Adam - thanks for being around smile As I said it's just noise in the logs so please don't feel any pressure at all . For completeness I've added a log snippet with the messages I get in the logs. Not sure if it helps in any way but that's what we get. Thanks - Christoph
