I have a problem to reconect to a SVN repository after I restart Eclipse Mars.
This is what I have done:

1. I download Eclipse Mars for PHP developers (Version: Mars.1 Release (4.5.1))
2. After unzip in desktop I launch it.
3. When Eclipse is open I go to help>install new softwate
4. In work with I choose: Mars - http://download.eclipse.org/releases/mars
5. In type filter here : Subversive
6. In the list of seven elements I check 1,3,4,5 and install them(next,next...finish)
7. I restart Eclipse
8. Then Window>Perspective>Open perspective>other>SVN ...
9. A window open to install conectors of a list of 4, I check 2 & 4 (next,next...finish)
10. I restart Eclipse again,and now I can try to conect.
11. In SVN repositories view>right click>New>Repositori Location
12. In the opened window I type the url to connec(In general TAB):
svn+ssh://[myserverurl]/[pathtotherepository]
13. In SSH Setting I Browse my sshkeyfile and type the passphrase and click finish. It starts to connect, a window prompt to introduce server user and pass,and the connection is done.
14. At this point I can work with no problem, updating and commiting to the repository in the server.

If I close Eclipse and open it again, the connection doesn´t work. Almost if I checked to remember the passwords.
I don´t know why if i restart or close and open again Eclipse the connection doesn´t work.

Any idea?

I'm not sure if it is, but this possibly could be related to Eclipse's Secure Storage that is used by plug-in to store passwords. If it is not active, then the passwords would not be stored permanently and after Eclipse IDE restart your SVN connection won't work until you re-enter the credentials. If this is not the case, then I'm out of ideas.

Hello,

I have a similar problem using Subclipse, installed via market place, using username & password instead of keyfile

In Preferences>Team>SVN>Client value is set to SVNKit (v1.8.11.10483)
In General>Security>Secure Storage Ui Prompt is checked (with Pripority 2). I've tried to create a master password, but nothing change... (and I'm never prompted to input it...)

Maybe the issue is related to ssh? I mean using ssh+svn
My OS is Ubuntu 15.10, but I have the same problem with Ubuntu 14.04 on a laptop

In order to permanently enable Eclipse Secure Storage (and prevent it from asking passwords after each restart) on Ubuntu do the following:
1) create a file called, for example, "master" at:
/home/<user folder>/.eclipse/master
2) store the password in the file in plain text form
3) in the eclipse.ini file add the following lines at the beginning of the file:
-eclipse.password
/home/<user folder>/.eclipse/master

If this does not help, then the problem most likely is somewhere else.

In my case, the solution was editing /home/user/.subversion/config:
[auth]
.......
store-passwords = yes
store-auth-creds = yes
store-plaintext-passwords = yes
