CLion 2016.1 Help

Authenticating to Subversion

Subversion server does not require user authentication on every request. When you use the Subversion integration from within CLion, you only need to answer the authentication challenge of the server, if it is required by the authentication and authorization policies. The successful authentication results in saving your credentials on disk, in ~/.subversion/auth/ on Unix systems or <USER HOME>/.subversion_IDEA on Windows and OS X.

When an authentication challenge comes from the server, the credentials are sought for in the disk cache; if the appropriate credentials are not found, or fail to authenticate, the users is prompted to specify the login name and password.

If necessary, you can opt to delete all credentials stored in cache, for http, svn and ssh+svn protocols.

To delete credentials from disk

  1. Open the Settings / Preferences Dialog by choosing File | Settings for Windows and Linux or CLion | Preferences for OS X, and click Version Control.
  2. On the Version Control page that opens, click Configure VCS.
  3. In the Version Control Configurations dialog, select Subversion.
  4. In the Subversion-related options page, click Clear authentication cache.
