hudson svn windows auth cache fix

June 14, 2012

Example error when attempting to update the svn credentials on hudson for windows:

hudson svn windows “the request doesn’t contain a multipart/form-data or multipart/mixed stream”

To fix this download svnkit- to your hard disk.  Login to computer hosting hudson as the user that hudson runs as.  For example, if hudson runs under tomcat and tomcat runs as user “tomcat_service” you would need to log in to that windows box as user “tomcat_service”.

Once you’ve logged in go to the extracted svnkit directory and run:

mkdir test
jsvn co (svn url) test --username (your svn username) --password (your svn pw) 

That’s it!
