Subversion authentication fails with 'Authentication required for'
The most common repository error while validating Subversion repository during plan configuration is:
This is not a valid Subversion Repository: svn: Authentication required for '<http://svnhost:80; My Subversion Repository'
In all likelihood, the authentication failed due to invalid login credentials. Please double-check your username and password and try again.
Using self signed SSL certifcates
If you are using a self signed certificate prior to Bamboo 2.1, you need to get Subversion to cache your repository connection as there is no way to instruct Bamboo to accept self-signed SSL certificates.
- Open up a command line (as the user running Bamboo) and checkout your repository before using Bamboo.
- If you are running Bamboo as a service on Windows, then consult this document to run the service as the local user,
- Login as the user running Bamboo, and checkout your repository.
Troubleshooting SVN Connection
If you are still having trouble connecting to repository:
- Try logging in outside of Bamboo, from the command line or from any other repository client. If this step fails, then it's likely that your repository is not configured correctly.
- Please consult our JIRA issue tracker for known Bamboo repository issues.
- If you still can't connect to Subversion, please debug Subversion and raise a support request and attach your atlassian-bamboo server logs to the support request.
