Sorry, we had some technical problems during your last operation.

com.google.template.soy.base.SoySyntaxException: In file bundle://200.0:1/templates/plugins/jira/vcs/updaterepository.soy:34, template JIRA.Templates.CVS.updateRepository: Call to 'JIRA.Templates.CVS.cvsFields' is missing required params [name, description, cvsRoot, moduleName, logFilePath, timeout, repositoryBrowserURL, repositoryBrowserRootParam].

Hi Salman,

I get a 500 error when I click CVS modules and see the same error in the logs.  Seeing as this was released in 2013 and doesn't look to be maintained I am not sure what versions this would stop working at and what code changes in Jira stop it from working.

The source code for that portion that is not working can be found at the app developers BitBucket page here if youre interested

One thing to note from the devs Bitbucket page is the following: 

Those customers who wish to continue to use CVS within JIRA, whilst receiving
Atlassian's legendary support, are encouraged to migrate to FishEye, or to
migrate away from CVS and to a more recent version control system.

If possible I would look into Fisheye/Crucible to work around this.



Thanks a lot, I have installed Fisheye-Crucible for the Integration.
