Environment: PB 2019 R2 Beta; Git; Github account with SSO enabled.

Hello - I get this Login error,
"Failed to perform the specified operation. Please make sure you can connect to the server repo"
while i am trying to connect to a workspace on Github.
My company has made SSO mandatory so can't move away from that. If this doesn't work with Appeon, then may be we wont be able to use the cool new git features at all and will be stuck with VSS (yep, that's right).

BTW, my ssh key is SSO enabled and this all works great with tortoise git outside Appeon. Any thoughts on the issue?

You can try using a PTA as both the user name and password in PB IDE to access your repository on GitHub. 

To create a PTA, you can click on your icon on the upper-right corner on GitHub > Settings > Developer Settings > Personal access tokens ...

@Tom Jiang, Thank you! I was just going to send you it didn't work BUT i enabled SSO on the PAT and voila, it worked! Thanks again for your suggestion!


Thanks for sharing the solution!
