Git Client add-on authentication issues

Post by rich_mason » Tue Nov 24, 2020 8:40 pm

I'm curious if anyone has had success logging in to TFS/Azure using the Git Client add-on. I can't seem to authenticate my credentials using the client..

I suspect the issue is that the client is trying to log me in to the wrong URL. From the error message, it appears like the client is trying to log me into (where I get a 403-access denied if I enter the URL in a browser), rather than , where I can successfully log in.

Is there any way to tell the client where to log in? Or is the client unable to work with TFS/Azure?

If you look into YOUR_PROECT/.git/config, is the remote URL properly set?

We recently had one user who confirmed that logging to TFS using SSH keys worked fine. Perhaps you can try SSH authentication too, if you haven't already done this. Let us know how it goes.

I found some more information about JGit (the Java library we used for Git operations) and TFS on this forum post: ... sg_1814538. I thought it might be helpful.

All the best wishes,
