Hi @Viswanadh koppolu,

The error message does not tell us much on what exactly is happening.

Please make sure that you have Git installed in the machine hosting your Fisheye instance.

If you had to install Git, please make sure that Fisheye was restarted afterwards. 

Also, you might need to configure the Git client executable in Fisheye.

I hope this helps!


Thanks for the reply, I figured the problem. Fisheye was not able to see git executable. I have added it to path and it works fine now.
