Thank you for the suggestion. That might very well be it. I asked my domain administrator but he didn't know what to look for. Would you know where such a setting might be? A config file or such? Thanks!

Med vänliga hälsningar / Best regards

Subject: Re: TortoiseSVN lost my author name

Hi Helena,

> I use TortoiseSVN x64 on my Windows 10 x64 laptop, accessing a remote server. The SVN server and my laptop are both on the same domain.
> Two years ago (I was running Windows 8.1 by then) I was given a username and password to access a repository. After a while of using the TortoiseSVN client, I grew tired of entering my username and password all the time, and checked the "save authentication" checkbox. It seemed to work fine.
> However, after some time, I realized that when I look in the log (TortoiseSVN -> Show log), on all my commits the author is empty. The commit message I wrote is shown, but there's no author. I am not allowed to edit it afterwards to enter my username, I get an error message.
> I tried on another client on another computer which is not on the domain, where I have not saved my details and had to enter them, and then it worked fine. My username appeared as author on my commit.
> I'm having the same problem on both of our repos.
> I've been trying to remove the saved credentials from my laptop, but to no avail. I tried removing the AppData/Roaming/Subversion/auth folder (which was empty anyway), but nothing happens and as soon as I interact with the repo again the folder is recreated, empty as before.
> I tried going to TortoiseSVN -> Settings -> Saved Data, and there the "clear" buttons on "Authentication data" are both disabled.
> I tried uninstalling TortoiseSVN, rebooting the computer, reinstalling it again, and checking out the whole repository anew (in a different location but on the same hard drive).
> I gave up on being able to solve this problem in 2014. Now, last week, I cleaned my hard drives and re-installed Windows 10 for other reasons, and I thought, this if anything must solve my problem. But it didn't, as soon as I had installed TortoiseSVN on my clean Windows and checked out my first repo, I was back to the same problem. The only thing that is consistent on my laptop before and after the Windows reinstallation is my domain user.
> During these two years I've continuously updated my TortoiseSVN client whenever an update was available. I'm currently using version 1.9.3.
Could it be that your server side is set up to use/pass-through your domain user credentials automatically and therefore you have access to the repository without having to use another authentication mechanism?
If that's it, you'd contact your administrator, I guess.
