Editing Subversion Source Control Profiles

To modify a Subversion source control profile:

  1. In the menu, click Project:<Project Name> > Project Settings .
  2. Click the Source Control tab. The Source Control page opens, listing all of the source control profiles that have been created for the system.
  3. Click on the name of the source control profile that you want to modify. The Edit Source Control Profile dialog box opens.
  4. Edit the Name of the profile. This is the name that is displayed in lists where profiles are available for selection.
  5. Edit the URL of the Subversion repository you want to access. If you do not know the URL of the repository, please consult your Subversion administrator.
    Note: If you cannot check out files, when editing the URL of the Subversion Repository, delete the source control mirrors directory on your execution server. For example, C:\ProgramData\SilkCentral\SrcCtrlMirrors.
    Note: To use SSH, add ssh to the URL, for example svn+ssh://<hostname>:<port>.
  6. Edit the Username and Password. These credentials are used to access your repository.
  7. Type a valid SSH username and SSH password or SSH keyfile. These credentials are used to access the SSH server. The password overrides the keyfile, so if you only have a keyfile, leave the SSH password field empty. If you use a keyfile, the path to the keyfile must be valid on every execution server that uses the source control profile.
  8. Optional: Edit the Common working folder to which the Silk Central execution server copies the source files. The working folder must be a local path. For example, C:\TempSources\.
    Warning: It is recommended to leave this field empty and let Silk Central use a temporary working folder instead. Specifying a static working folder can lead to unexpected results when running parallel executions. The temporary location can be queried from the predefined parameter #sctm_source_root_dir.
  9. Edit the Project path you want this profile to use.
  10. Click OK.

    Silk Central attempts a trial connection to the external system using the information you have provided.

    Note: If an error occurs, please review the information that you have supplied, or consult your administrator.

If the trial connection is successful, you are returned to the Source Control page.
