Hello Rahul,

Based on the error (403 Forbidden while accessing https://rahulyelamareddy:********@github.com/xxx/test.git), it seems the user (rahulyelamareddy) does not have access to the repository (github.com/xxxxx/test.git).

Please, attempt on cloning the repository from Terminal by running:

git clone https://rahulyelamareddy@github.com/xxx/test.git

Please, make sure the user (rahulyelamareddy) has permission over this repository.

If using GitHub Enterprise, please have a look at https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BAM-11589

Kind regards,
Rafael P. Sperafico

It is working fine when i tried cloning it from command line Rafael.

git clone https://rahulyelamareddy@github.com/xxx/test.git

Initialized empty Git repository in /root/test/.git/

I am assuming that bamboo is passing its admin id and password instead of what i am passing through linked repository configuration ,but i am not able to find a way to over come this .
