See stackoverflow question and user for details including workaround.
Check for changes in folders linked via svn:externals fails due to missing credentials
svn:externals not being checked out
It will be quite nice feature to have.
I think this kind of thing is handled better in the new refactoring branch.
the 2.0 refactoring allows adding additional credentials which will be tried in turn for the svn:externals
The only issue I (and some others) have with this is - you must specify additional credentials now for all your external projects, even if they are on the same server.
maybe you could use the additional credentials only if the already provided credentials for the repository fail. Otherwise the workaround makes it a necessity to edit a lot of jobs.
This is a necessary security fix to resolve a vulnerability whereby commit access to one portion of a subversion repository can be used to hijack Jenkins' credentials (which are typically global read) to gain read access to the rest of the repository. A valid enhancement request would be a checkbox to allow opting in to using the module credentials on matching externals

Your suggested enhancement request sounds good to me. Can we treat this JIRA as that request, or is there another, or does one need to be created?
Stephen Connolly That looks a lot like what I'm suggesting here – or how'd you determine what "matching externals" are?
