When adding a repository, what is the advantage of using Github over just Git? We have a github repository but it is a custom github url for us. So, I am able to use git but not github.
Thank you for your question.
By selecting Repository host as Github, the authentication and checkout will be made through HTTP(S) protocol as you are only providing username and password as credentials. Whereas using Git instead, you are able to set up SSH as an alternative to source code checkout.
If you find this answer useful, I would kindly ask you to accept it so the same will be visible to others who might be facing the same issue you have inquired.
Thank you for your understanding.
