I am trying to import code from my private git repository in `Library Editor` (I can't make it public since the information is sensitive). As a result it is throwing me error

Remote references can't be fetchedBranches and tags could not be fetched from remote Git, caused by: IOException: Process failure, caused by: IOException: Process execution failed (return code 128) (error=remote: Support for password authentication was removed on August 13, 2021. Please use a personal access token instead. remote: Please see for more information. fatal: Authentication failed for '' )Please check the flow for more detailsMore information on this error in DSS documentationAdditional technical details: HTTP code: 500, Code: ERR_GIT_LIST_REFS_FAILED, type: com.dataiku.dip.exceptions.CodedException

How can I solve this issue, I have the access token with me. How to tell dataiku to use it?

    Hi @AlexT

    I am working on pretty much the same task, that is connecting to an Azure DevOps git repo from DSS hosted on Azure. Seems like an SSH connection is a good approach and so working on getting that set up.

    A question about your note though. Is your step 2 required? I thought that was optional and only necessary if we wanted to to limit access to repos by group.



    P.S., the link for step 1 as some extra text (%C2%A0) that make it not work.

    Indeed similar steps would apply for Azure Devops :

    For step 2 you will need to at least use .* or the regex suggested and allow your groups git access.

    Otherwise, you will get an error like "You are not allowed to use remote Git commands". If Allow git for the groups is not enabled. Refer to screenshot below.
