403 error github import

I get a 403 forbidden error when trying to import issues from github (not enterprise). Linking the account went just fine, but can't see any of the github issues.

Cannot connect with Github Server: Github server has responded with incorrect Status code: HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden

The user is an adminstrator of the github account, so he should have all the access.

We are using the JIRA cloud option.


Any suggestions,

Best regards,

Never mind, I tried again a few days later and it seems to work now.
