How do I add a Subversion ALM ssh repository?

The paths to our svn repos are


I've tried combinations of



with basic authentications with

    Forced HTTP Auth checked
    Forced HTTP Auth unchecked

and absolute and relative paths to my id_rsa file that has no Protocol pass phrase.  Every permutation gives me the error

    svn: E215000: Credential data unavailable

I've tried looking for a definitive example for my environment but so far haven't found one.  What steps do I need to take to add our repository?

Thanks for reading.

I won't be surprised if this is pilot error, but as of now I'm still not finding the combination that will work for us.  Should I try to find some other svn solution?

This is how I did it just now:

  • I specified the URL as svn-ssh://my.server.addr/foo/bar (no username in the URL)
  • Then I added the username I want to connect with in the Basic Authentication section.
  • I copied the rsa_id file to the /var/atlassian/application-data/jira and then specified /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/rsa_id in the field for the key

That worked.

Hi all,
I've got the exact same problem: using the svn+ssh:// protocol causes the "svn: E215000: Credential data unavailable" error, no matter what other data I supply in the username/password/keyfile.

 @Karl-König Königsson which version of the Subversion ALM plugin are you using?

I am right now on 9.0.3, but since my answer is about a year old I can not tell for sure which version I was running then. On the other hand, I have been rather lazy about updating the plugins so it might well be that 9.0.3 is the one I had.

ok, I'm trying to get things running with 9.0.9. Thanks for the info!
