Build integration


I would like to configure CI with Visual Studio Online. Hooking up with self hosted service I get:


2017-07-25T16:00:36.4387217Z ##[command]git remote add origin
2017-07-25T16:00:36.4737228Z ##[command]git config 0

2017-07-25T16:00:36.6447275Z ##[command]git fetch --tags --prune --progress origin
2017-07-25T16:00:37.0122318Z fatal: could not read Password for 'http://********': terminal prompts disabled

2017-07-25T16:00:37.0712501Z ##[section]Finishing: Get Sources


How can I enable terminal prompts?

Hi Pawel,

The issue you're running into is originating from Visual Studio.  You'll want to take a look at the articles VisualStudio error: terminal prompts disabled, Git push requires username and password and Attempting push on git and receiving “could not read Username for '': terminal prompts disabled:”

Solution: Open the command line, navigate to the folder and git push origin master. We can find there will be a prompt to ask you to input the github username and password. Just do it!

In additon, the second article provides a more permanent solution using a password:

As per my Comment. You can include your username in the remote URL (similar to FTP).

Example without password (SSH):

git remote set-url origin

Example with password (https)

Once you follow the steps in the linked articles you should be set!
