The Subversion source configuration type is implemented as an external type.

Subversion (SVN) is an open source version control system.

To use Subversion as an artifact source, select Subversion from the Source Config Type drop-down list box and then configure the type-specific fields described here. For information about creating components, see Creating Components.

Note: The Subversion Source Config Type integration is not the same as the Subversion plugin. Plugins are special integrations used in processes. For details on using the Subversion plugin, see the Deployment Automation Plugins Guide.

Subversion Fields Table

Field Description
Repository URL Base URL for the Subversion repository
Watch for tags Watch for new tags instead of new versions.
Includes The patterns to match files to include in the upload. The wildcard ** indicates every directory and the wildcard * indicates every file. For example, the pattern dist/**/* would retrieve the entire file tree under the dist directory.

The patterns to match files to exclude from the upload.

User Subversion user name

Preserve Execute Permissions When enabled, file execute permissions are saved with the files.
Use Latest Component Properties for Version Download

If this is selected, the current component properties are used to download this component's version artifacts in Versions > Artifacts. You should deselect this if the component's storage location or connection details have changed since the version artifacts you want to download were imported, so that the component properties that were set when the version was created are used instead. See Maintaining Versions Externally.

Copy to CodeStation

This option, selected by default, creates a tamper-proof copy of the artifacts and stores them in the embedded artifact management system, CodeStation. For optimal use of Deployment Automation, the check box should be selected.

If you deselect Copy to Codestation for this source configuration type, pointers to versions are saved in Deployment Automation rather than the versions themselves. This enables you to track the versions, but limits some functionality in Deployment Automation. See Maintaining Versions Externally.
