Hi Sagar,

There is a knowledge base article titled Upgrading JIRA subversion plugin fails due to subversion indexes that can help:


The subversion indexes need to be rebuilt upon upgrading the plugin.


  1. Shutdown JIRA
  2. Remove the atlassian-subversion-revisions directory from jira-home\caches\indexes\plugins
    • Make sure to delete the actual atlassian-subversion-revisions directory and not just its content
    • Check that the JIRA user has write access to the JIRA home directory
  3. Start JIRA
  4. Reindex your JIRA just to confirm whether the indexes has been properly rebuilt.

Try those steps and you should be set.



Thanks will try that oout
