Force user to authenticate on commit

Added by Justyn Bell almost 9 years ago

I know this should be possible, but as of now, I can commit to my SVN repository using Redmine without any authentication... which I don't want. What I would like (and how I've seen it done) is a user is prompted for his/her username, and subsequently password. I've tried tweaking just about everything, so this is my last hope.

Here are the relevant parts of my config files:


PerlLoadModule Apache::Redmine
<Location /svn>
        DAV svn
        SVNParentPath /var/www/redmine-svn
        Options FollowSymLinks
        #Order deny,allow
        #Deny from all
        Require valid-user
        Satisfy any

        # If a client tries to svn update which involves updating many files,
        # the update request might result in an error Server sent unexpected
        # return value (413 Request  Entity Too Large) in response to REPORT
        # request,because the size of the update request exceeds the limit
        # allowed by the server. You can avoid this error by disabling the
        # request size limit by adding the line LimitXMLRequestBody 0
        # between the <Location...> and </Location> lines. 
        LimitXMLRequestBody 0

        # Only check Authentication for root path, nor again for recursive
        # folder.
        # Redmine core does only permit access on repository level, so this
        # doesn't hurt security. On the other hand it does boost performance
        # a lot!
        SVNPathAuthz on

        PerlAccessHandler Apache::Authn::Redmine::access_handler
        PerlAuthenHandler Apache::Authn::Redmine::authen_handler
        AuthType Basic
        AuthName "Redmine SVN Repository" 

        #read-only access    
                Require valid-user
                Allow from localhost
                # Allow from another-ip
                Satisfy any

        # write access
                #Require all denied
                Require valid-user

        ## for mysql
        RedmineDSN "DBI:mysql:database=redmine_default;host=localhost" 

        RedmineDbUser "redmine" 
        RedmineDbPass "----------" 



<VirtualHost *:80>
        # The ServerName directive sets the request scheme, hostname and port that
        # the server uses to identify itself. This is used when creating
        # redirection URLs. In the context of virtual hosts, the ServerName
        # specifies what hostname must appear in the request's Host: header to
        # match this virtual host. For the default virtual host (this file) this
        # value is not decisive as it is used as a last resort host regardless.
        # However, you must set it for any further virtual host explicitly.

        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
        DocumentRoot /var/www/html

        # Available loglevels: trace8, ..., trace1, debug, info, notice, warn,
        # error, crit, alert, emerg.
        # It is also possible to configure the loglevel for particular
        # modules, e.g.
        #LogLevel info ssl:warn

        ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
        CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

        <Directory /var/www/html/redmine>
                RailsBaseURI /redmine
                PassengerResolveSymlinksInDocumentRoot on

        # For most configuration files from conf-available/, which are
        # enabled or disabled at a global level, it is possible to
        # include a line for only one particular virtual host. For example the
        # following line enables the CGI configuration for this host only
        # after it has been globally disabled with "a2disconf".
        #Include conf-available/serve-cgi-bin.conf

I have uncommented

store-passwords = no
store-auth-creds = no

in /etc/subversion/config, and deleted the svn.simple saved credentials on my local machine.

Hopefully this is a simple problem because I've spent far too much time on it.

Thanks in advance.

I forgot to mention that this manifests itself as commits in the repository tab of Redmine with nothing under the "author" column. I need this user authentication because the code base we're working on sits on a single machine with multiple users committing. I'd like them to be forced to enter their credentials so I know who the authors of certain commits are.
