Has anyone managed to connect Fisheye to an Azure git repository ?


I am struggling to connect Fisheye 4.6.1 to an Azure git repository.

I am uploading a Private SSH key given to me (RSA, 2k, no passphrase), and the URL is:[organisation]/[project]/[repo]

Fisheye accepts the URL,despite it not matching any of the patterns in the Fisheye documentation.  However, I receive:

Error testing connection.
Error talking to repository:

ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection refused
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

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

2. I have to change the user name in the HTTPS address from the Azure default address to the Username provided in the "Generate Git Credentials" page. 

e.g. change to
