I am trying to connect to an SVN repository with an svn:// URL which is authenticating through LDAP.
I have followed the instructions about the "
-Dsvnkit.http.methods=Basic,Digest,Negotiate,NTLM" setting, but to no avail (probably because it is svn:// protocol and not http://) - and I cannot change the SVN server...
In Version 0.10.11 (before version 2 of the plugin), I had been able to work around this problem by using an older version (1.3.3) of SVNkit, which I cannot do in 0.10.12 of the plugin (because it finally uses new features of SVNkit).
Can anyone provide a hint how to connect to svn://+LDAP with SVNkit 1.7.4 which is packaged with this plugin version 0.10.11?
As there does not seem to be a solution for any newer version of the plug-in, we finally decided to interface with our systems through an custom plugin (https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/JIRA+Plugin+Guide). Follow the bug tracker at https://ecosystem.atlassian.net/browse/SVN-259for this problem.
I was hunting this same problem today.
I ended up downloading the source code and building the plugin myself and finally were able to create a workable version. I then revealed that it was failing with a ClassNotFoundException for the java.security.sasl.SaslException.
The solution was to include some more packages in the MANIFEST.
I added the following lines to the pom.xml in the Import-Package section:
Regarding your change:
This is useless in order to support LDAP. It is useful when you allow to connect with Basic and NTLM. By defult, SVNKit tries NTLM so it fails and you cannot connect to Subversion. In this case, setting the Basic authentication with a higher priority will resolve the connection problem but you do not yet connect by using your LDAP.
As you also noticed, it only applies for connections over the http(s) and not for the svn protocol.
The error log says this:
org.tmatesoft.svn.core.SVNAuthenticationException: svn: E170001: Cannot negotiate authentication mechanism
Is there any hint on why SASL would not work? The SASL classes are included in the plug-in's svnkit library, so I believe it should work.
Also, when I use the binary bundled in the svnkit bin/ directory and do a "jsvn co svn://..." it does work, so there seems to be a problem with the integration of SVNkit into the Atlassian plugin, not with svnkit itself or the server. Any hints, something that one might configure in the Atlassian plugin?
