Linking work items to Subversion repositories

In the manual entry for the above, an immediate scan can be requested using the "update Links" on the context entry. Doing this I get an error saying that the SVN repository requires authentication, which is true. But there does not appear to be a dialog to log in.
It does not seem unreasonable to have authentication on a SVN repository.
Also, as a general question, if I use a SVN repos with RTC and do not import the contents into the RTC db but simply link the work items to the SVN repos, then presumably I should create a new RTC project then link with SVN?

Also trying to link a svn revision to a work item. I bring up th eproperties of the eclipse project in the navigator. But there is no Jazz Work Items page.
Neither under team do I see show history or Update.
What am I missing here?

OK I have sorted the problem with getting the SVN context menu. In Navigator, select repository and context menu -> team. then share project. Select SVN and continue. Because the repository is already there it will just make eclipse realise that svn is the chosen scm for this project. Then context menu shows full svn menu.

Still following the manual. Have edited the Jazz Work Items page which adds properties to the root folder in the svn repository (or it will after do I commit). Then do a commit, add the work item id. Response is
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: CHECKOUT of '/svn/xxx/!svn/ver/6/': 403 Forbidden (http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)
Now this is right as the repository requires authentication for the directories concerned. But I have not been able to find any dialog that asks for user / password.
Does anyone know where this is?

Hello norricorp,

I have worked with this once (long time ago) and can not check it right now.
I think I remember RTC uses the RTC user ID and password to connect to SVN.
I am not really sure, but you could try.

Ralph,

you are right - it uses the credentials that are cached by the svn client in your home directory.
But sorting that started a new set of problems ...

Did you install one of the Eclipse SVN clients? RTC provides a bridge to
these clients but does not provide the SVN client itself. You can google
either Subclipse or Subversive to find a suitable Eclipse SVN client. If
you have a client install, you then need to load a project from the SVN
repository. The page only appears on projects that are mapped to an SVN
repository.
