jira subversion commit data starts from old commits

Hi, all,

after jira upgrade to 5.1.4 with corresponding subversion plugin 0.10.11,

now project general screen tab "Subverison" shows commits ordered from first commit to last, not like previously (jira 4.2.4 ) - latest commits on the top.

Therefore we can see old commits, but latest commits are out of page - invisible.

How can this be fixed, reordered?

Thanks, in advance!

I guess this issue isn't being faced by many people?

I'm going to take a look at the source and see if there's an easy fix.


No, everyone is facing this issue, but most people do not use the project tab but use the issue tab. Atlassian does not seem to care to fix issues in the subversion plugin except when absolutely forced to.

Looking at the Atlassian's product catalog you could see how things are going to:


  • BitBucket and onDemand for hosting services
  • Stash for the server
  • SourceTree for the client

while Subversion regards to:

  • End of service for the hosting
  • The poorly maintained JIRA Subversion plugin
  • The FishEye old dinosaur

It seems that every customer dissapointed with the lack of support of Subversion becomes a good candidate to live in the new Git wonderful world.

While Subversion is mature (from the business point of view) in a saturated market with tons of tools and vendors supporting it, Git is virgin compared to it. And the war is in gaining Git market share by providing support, services and tools around it. The sound of cannons is bringing confusion to Subversion users.

I hope products like Subversion Plus for JIRA which are absolutely powerful and simple to use will bring some peace of mind to Subversion users, thus they do not being involved in needing to participate in the Git war, which is mainly a business strategic issue orchestrated by Atlassian among other development tool vendors.

Subversion Plus:


It's compatible and fixes this problem, furthermore it also supports pagination.

dude, you are a rockstar tonight. many thanks for the quick comment - if I didn't properly do all I can to say thanks then let me know. This is an extremely cool piece of intel.


yes, this is true for all projects I checked > related to many repositories

Are all users seeing this behavior ?

I am asking for all users not projects ?

also true for different users

Looking at the code Subversion plugin uses the sort order of issue tab panel as default, can you check are your other tabs also sorted on ascending order ?


I`m talking about project screen, not specific issue screen. Kinda general subversion acitivity observation.


Its ordered like

Repository Revision





so I cant see revision 1000

You might want to try this fork of the plug-in:


it shows the latest commits at the begginig of the Subversion project tab.
