repo.asp in FB 7 doesn't work

We just upgraded from FB 6 to FB 7 and our WebSVN integration is broken. We have used a repo.asp file in the past but it appears FB 7 uses some new method for this. I read the docs on SC integration but they only seem to describe new installations not migrating existing ones. How do I do this?

Hi Steve,

Just go to Admin > Source Control and edit your repository.  FogBugz no longer uses repo.asp.

Diff URL should be:^FILE&rev=^R2&sc=1&repname=repo1 (for example)

Log URL should be:^FILE&rev=0&sc=1&repname=repo1

Thanks for your answer but it doesn't quite work in our case because we have multiple repositories. We had followed the previous advice and our post-commit scripts prepended repository identifiers to the SVN file paths stored in FB. So I have written php scripts to remove the repository identifiers before passing them on to the WebSVN scripts.

I still don't understand what the 6 to 7 database upgrade code did to create the new repository records. The repository records are somehow related to certain cases as shown on the source control page.

The good news is that I seem to have a solution that works.

Just for clarification, we built the multiple repo support INTO FogBugz 7.  So now you can create multiple repos and your hook script just passes an ixRepository parameter to tell FogBugz which repo that hook is in.
