Use this page to specify the settings to be applied to you project directories that are under Subversion control

ItemDescription
Use command line client Select this option if you want to use the command line svn client. Enter the name of the executable file, or click the Browse button /help/img/idea/2017.2/browseButton.png and select the path in the dialog that opens.
Enable interactive mode Select this option if you want IntelliJ IDEA to emulate the behavior when Subversion commands are executed directly from the terminal in the interactive mode (dialogs will pop up where you can input credentials). This is required to handle password/passphrase prompts for svn+ssh repositories, and trust invalid server certificates for https repositories.
Use custom configuration directory Select this option if you do not want to store Subversion configuration files in the system default location, and specify the path to the custom directory.
Update administrative information only in changed subtrees

This option only applies to working copies older than SVN 1.7 managed by SVNKit.

During synchronization with the server (update), SVN locks your working copy one subtree after another by creating empty lock files in the corresponding administrative .svn directories. After that, SVN starts comparing file hashes to detect which local files need to be synchronized.

When this option is selected, SVN first checks if any files from a subtree have been modified on the server, and locks this subtree (i.e. creates a .svn/lock file) only if such files are detected. This approach improves performance but may cause concurrency issues, for example, with antiviral software.

Presentation

Use this settings page to configure data presentation settings.

ItemDescription
Check svn:mergeinfo in target subtree when preparing for merge Select this option if you want IntelliJ IDEA to check the merge tracking information for the target branch before merging to prevent duplicates.
Maximum number of revisions to look back in annotations Select this option to limit the number of revisions to look back at when calculating annotations, and specify the number of revisions.
Show merge source in history and annotations Select this option if you want merge sources to be visible in annotations and file history.
Ignore whitespace differences in annotations Select this option if you want white spaces to be ignored when annotating, and, thus, get more meaningful annotations and cast out senseless ones.

Network

Use this settings page to configure the connection settings.

ItemDescription
Use IntelliJ IDEA general proxy settings as default for Subversion Select this option if you want Subversion to use the default IntelliJ IDEA proxy settings.
HTTP timeout Specify the number of seconds to wait for HTTP connection to be established.
SSH connection timeout Specify the number of seconds to wait for SSH connection to be established.
SSH read timeout Specify the number of seconds to wait for response.
SSL protocols In this area, select which SSL protocol you want to use. The available options are:
  • All
  • SSLv3
  • TLSv1
Edit Network Options Click this button to change Subversion runtime configuration file in the Edit Subversion options related to the network layers dialog.

SSH

Use this settings page to configure the settings used to connect to an SVN server via a tunneling SSH protocol.

ItemDescription
SSH executable Specify the path to the SSH client. Enter the name of the executable file, or click the Browse button /help/img/idea/2017.2/browseButton.png and select the path in the dialog that opens. If not specified, 'ssh' is used by default.

This field is only available if the Password or the Private key option is selected.

User name Specify the user name for SSH connection. If the user name is explicitly specified in the repository URL, this value will be used and this setting will be ignored.

This field is only available if the Password or the Private key option is selected.

Port If your server is listening on a non-standard port (22 for svn+ssh://), modify the default value.

This field is only available if the Password or the Private key option is selected.

Password Select this option if you want to use a password for SSH authentication.
Private key Select this option if you want to use a private key for SSH authentication.
Path Specify the path to the private key. Enter the path manually, or click the Browse button /help/img/idea/2017.2/browseButton.png and select the path in the dialog that opens.
Subversion config Select this option if you want to use the default settings stored in Subversion configuration for SSH connection.
SSH tunnel This field displays the SSH tunnel settings stored in Subversion configuration. You can modify the value and click the Update button to write this value to the Subversion configuration.
Update Click this button to check the Subversion configuration and update the value if necessary, or to write the value you have entered to the Subversion configuration.
SVN_SSH This field displays the environment variable that can be used in the tunnel configuration (by default, SVN_SSH) and is stored in Subversion configuration.
