SVN Update Exception core.SVNException: svn: E200030: READONLY

Issue

SVN fails to update project, showing error E200030:

ERROR: Failed to update MY_REMOTE_SVN_PROJECT_URL
...
org.tmatesoft.svn.core.SVNException: svn: E200030: READONLY
...

Environment

  • CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise
  • SVN

Resolution

This looks to be a permission issue. Jenkins user needs write permission for SVN to your project directory. Can you check the permissions of your project directory.

To recursively change permissions to allow Jenkins to write to your project you can run:

sudo chown -R MY_JENKINS_USER:MY_JENKINS_GROUP MY_PROJECT

where MY_JENKINS_USER and MY_JENKINS_GROUP should be replaced with the user and group that you use for Jenkins and MY_PROJECT replaced with your project directory.
