Hi, @jcrphx

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

I tested cloning a public repository and it didn’t ask me for a password, so in order to further investigate what's happening on your side, could you please share the following information with us?

  • The repository URL, so we can confirm if there is something wrong with this repo;

  • A screenshot that shows the clone command you are executing and the output;

  • Are you cloning this repo from the command line/terminal or a Git client (if so, which one)?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Hello Caroline,

This is my repository URL

As an anonymous user I found, that if I try to clone the repository via SSH I am getting the fatal message below, 

git clone
cloning into 'SimpletimeService' Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: could not read from remote repository.

Please make you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists


 but If I try via https works fine as expected  

git clone


If this is the right behavior expected please then disregard and thank you very much for your support.
