Go back to the test directory, remove all files and checkout again:
It will ask to persist the credentials: Choose permanent.
It will ask for the password for 'jenkins': Don't give any It will ask for a username: Give that username (then pwd) for that access.
SVN will checkout the project and then remember the credentials.

rm -rf * from that test directory)
Run an SVN checkout command: It won't ask for the credentials any longer as they are stored.
