I am trying to add an external git repository to a visual studio team services build process but always receive an error during build:
Request failed with status code: 404
Prepare repository failed with exception.
On the page Specify the repository I can only read
Fill in the Add New External Git Repository Connection dialog box.
But how? Searching the internet I could not find any help. Trying out different settings - nothing helped.
What do I have to enter for a repository located at for example
In the build definition within the repository tab I enter
Repository type: External Git
Add new external git repository connection (setting up a connection)
Server URL: https://bitbucket.org
User name: myUserName
Password/Token Key: ********
Repository name: repodir/repo.git
( I also tried Repository name: repodir/repo )
What ever I try - I always get the error message. Using command line, I can easily clone the repository. How can I enable Team Services to clone an external repository? I think I am missing something big here...
Thanks a lot for any help.
