  • Authentication on a local repo

    Hello,

    I'm using SmartSVN 9.0.3 #4059 on a OS X El Capitan to access a SVN configured locally, and I like it pretty much (I'm from Tortoise/win).

    I'm using user appUser to start the app and svnUser is the owner of the repo. How can I perform a connection using proper credentials and not using appUser by default? I've seen on docs and forum topics that SmartSVN asks for credentials, if needed, but it seems a weird behavior. I would like to use which user I want to perform SVN commands, despite if the user running the app is allowed or not to access the repo. In my case the appUser is allowed to access the repo, but only on a read-only basis, so when I perform a commit errors pop up, of course. I would not like to run SmartSVN using the repo user. From what I've seen, there was a repo manager that allowed this before (I must say that repo managers are also more user friendly than feature like I-will-ask-if-needed).

    Maybe I'm just missing something. Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Thank you all,
    Dolfiz

    Changed permission on repo files to let appUser commit. This is the only way I managed to handle the problem. But, of course, I'm not able to use a different user if I'd want. I must say that removing the repo manager wasn't a good idea from a usability point of view. I would like to have full control on association between different repos and different user credentials.

    Anyway, a good piece of software. Thank you to let a free version exists.

    Thanks,
    Dolfiz
