Errors when trying to import Fisheye Backup into new environment

Overview - We have a live instance of Fisheye connected to a SVN repository, this in the process of being migrated into a new environment

When attempting to restore the data onto the new environment the following error is recieved after a few seconds of the process being initiated;

ERROR - Errors parsing E:\Atlassian\FishEye\config.xml:

ERROR - at line 32138: Expected elements 'max-indexable-size@ updater@' instead of 'show-checkout-url@' here in element repository-defaults@

Hi Chris,

It seems like you are trying to migrate newer version of Fisheye into older one. The checkout URL feature which configuration is found in your config.xml was introduced in FishEye 3.2, see

It won't be possible to migrate that instance into Fisheye 3.1.1 you are using, can you perhaps check FishEye versions and ensure new environment is no older than old one?

That was indeed the problem - our test environemnt's backup i was restoring from had been uprgraded without me knowing!
