SVN Commit As A Different User

Is it possible to commit to svn as a different user?
Just before posting, I realised that I could clear the authorisation cache before checking in, but I can't see any other option.
Nor can I see which user is logged in via the cache either

Hello opticyclic,

IDEA looks into Subversion configuration directory, and reads credentials stored there (usernames are stored there as well).

For you to relogin with another user, clear cache (or manually delete credentials, stored on disk - that way you can keep part of them), restart IDEA, and in credentials dialog just type username that you need (as far as I understand, user account name is suggested by default).

Also, for SSH access, you can use different names for login onto remote host and for work with SVN repository
