Help with commit acceptance to exclude a path from the commit hook


Most of the time my team commit to the SVN repo and I want the hook to be executed and I want them to be forced to add the JIRA Key to the commit message. However I have some clients that are committing to a certain folder in the repo and I dont want them to enter a JIRA project key.

Is there a way in the to exclude a certain path? I know nothing about perl so really need some help with this.

Many thanks.

The Commit Acceptance Plugin does not support this.

The Commit Policy plugin can check the existence of issue keys (against a JQL) in your commit message, and you can limit the verification to certain paths using a regular expression.

If you use a regex like this, you can check the commits only on trunk, for example:
