I'm new to BuildMaster and I'm having a problem labeling source in Subversion (see the log bellow).

The "Get Latest from trunk" action works fine.

I've the BuildMaster Express 3.5.8 (Build 30),
Subversion 1.7.9 - both installed locally.

Thanks for an advice,

Hi Jan,

Subversion does not support the "Apply Label" operation, so it complains about this. The UI is supposed to prevent you from using this action, but I think one of the recipes will create this action for you.

Just replace the Apply Label / Get Labeled action pair with:

  1. Tag /trunk/mypath to /tags/%RELNO%.%BLDNO%
  2. Get Latest from /tags/%RELNO%.%BLDNO%

Hope that helps,
