Why does the Jenkins SVN plugin give error E170001 when connecting to my VisualSVN server?

advertisements

What I know about the VisualSVN server: it supports Windows Active Directory authentication and "basic" authentication using my Windows username and password. I can use TortoiseSVN, CollabNet, and Mac OS X Subversion clients successfully.

To replicate the error, do the following:

  1. Install the Windows Jenkins package (version 1.616).
  2. Update the SVN plugin to version 2.5.
  3. Create a freestyle project.
  4. Under Source Code Management, choose Subversion.
  5. Input the repository URL.
  6. Add your Windows username and password as credentials.

I then see the following error below "Credentials":

Unable to access https://<svn-server> : svn: E170001: Negotiate authentication failed: 'No valid credentials provided'

I tried this solution of setting the http-auth-types global server option to basic. In %APPDATA%\Subversion I added

http-auth-types=basic

to the global section of the servers file. I still receive the above errors.


In the user's Subversion folder (%APPDATA%\Subversion for Windows, ~/.subversion for Linux/Mac OS x) add

http-auth-types=Basic

to the global section of the servers file. Note that the case is different between Basic and basic.


For me, VisualSVN reports the following list of authentication options that it supports:

Negotiate
NTLM
Basic realm="VisualSVN Server"

When the Jenkins Subversion plugin uses http-auth-types to order this list, it does a case-sensitive comparison. So Basic is different from basic and the server's Basic option remains at the bottom of the list. Negotiate gets used instead and apparently the SVN plugin cannot deal with that.
