Subversion plugin error: Status: Inactive (svn: Malformed network data)

Hello!

We have problem with Subversion plugin on some of our repos. When I try to check svn log on that repo manualy, it hangs for 2-3minutes on particular revision and then shows whole log. SVN plugin probably has some timeout and it's not waiting for whole log. Maybe there is some variable for that? Or maybe other workaround?

Error log:

QuartzWorker-1 ERROR ServiceRunner Subversion Revision Indexing Service [plugin.ext.subversion.SubversionManagerImpl] Error retrieving changes from the repository.

The error is from the svnkit. Can you upgrade Jira to allow for later versions of the subversion plugin?

I can't. I tried to upgrade just svnkit but without result.

Hi Norma,

If you don't mind, you could uninstall the svnkit plugin and upgrade to latest JIRA version.

Before you proceed. please do backup your xml file.

After done, reinstall back the svnkit plugin with compatible version and restore the file. I suggest you to try on testing environment or other JIRA instance to confirm the error still occur in your end.

I hope its help.

Regards, John.

I'm having the same problem. I'm runing jira 5.1.8 with subversion plugin v0.10.11.1. This is the newest plugin.

Hi Michael,

As it turns out, I believe you are actually facing a bug with SVN that is being tracked here:

https://ecosystem.atlassian.net/browse/SVN-364

Some customers mentioned that a restart of the JIRA application resolved the issue, but this is not a confirmed workaround.

Cheers
