Change username for SVN

Anyone know how to change the username for linking a database to SVN. When I first connected I was prompted for the info, but after that I cannot find a way to change the username. All my checkins are tagged with the original test user.

  • Hi csmith_jinny,

    The login information is usually cached by the SVN client on your local machine, outside of SQL Source Control. (The window you see in SQL Source Control is because SQL Source Control is being asked for credentials by SVN).

    The credentials are stored in the following location on your machine typically:

    c:\users\username\AppData\Roaming\Subversion

    If you rename the "auth" folder, it will prompt you again for credentials the next time you attempt to link. However, this will affect your existing linked databases, so beware before performing this step. There is also a readme.txt file contained in that same directory, that contains some instructions as well that may be helpful.

    Best Regards,
    Steve
