If you're looking for support in the hosted repositories section of SourceTree then GitHub Enterprise currently isn't supported. There are open issues for it though (SRCTREE-1182 and SRCTREEWIN-1034).
If you simply want to clone a GH:E repository then you can just clone as you normally would just without using hosted repositories. Any repository that's accessible to you whether publicly or over VPN or in your local network can be cloned into SourceTree.
I feel like just calling this out here that I highly doubt Atlassian want's to priorize - or even do it at all - because GitHub Enterprise is a direct competitor to their Stash product. GitHub's desktop client is not as feature rich as Atlassian's SourceTree so this is a natural way to try to help point business users to use stash over GH:E.
GitHub is also a direct competitor to Bitbucket, yet we support that :) this isn't anything to do with competition, we're happy to support GH:E accounts, but there hasn't been enough interest in it for us to prioritise it.
Furthermore, SourceTree doesn't stop you from using GH:E repositories at all, you just need to enter the clone URL, which is a one-time thing for a repository, so we don't stop you from using any host whatsoever. You can clone from wherever you want provided you've got access.
There's a number of factors that determine whether we're going to implement a feature; time, interest, awesomeness, and generally whether it's worth it. Because right now users can clone from GH:E it's not inhibiting them from using SourceTree with their GH:E repositories. This doesn't mean we don't think it's important, it just means for the moment they can perform all the actions like they normally can with other repositories, just without having a list of them in their hosted repositories list.
Hope that helps
Hey Kieran, this certainly helps. As I need to be able to provide an easy interface at our faculty that works with our Enterprise version of Git at the university, you just confirmed SourceTree is not an option. If I have to explain that work flow to our students, PhDs and professors, I better find another option. Thank you
Sorry Kieran but that doesn't cut it.
This is a very popular Google search and there are many forum posts asking about this. There have been many duplicate issues created on both the Windows and Mac versions of the issue boards which specifically ask for this.
Making it work -- according to GitHub's own API documentation -- would be as simple as allowing the users to edit the URL text box when adding a GitHub remote repo to SourceTree.
Atlassian employees comment on those duplicate posts saying that because the post is a duplicate one, the original will be escalated in importance. These "duplicates" have been coming in since 2012 and the one that's remained open is still marked as low priority.
Get one of your interns to change the textbox Active parameter from "false" to "true" and stop BSing your users! It's disgusting.
As to whether this change is worth it or important to people or how much time it will take....your users have done the research for you. Changing the active status of a UI element is trivial and can be done in minutes. It's a $10 development cost. Open up a GoFundMe project if you don't wanna pay for it.
You guys put more time and effort into dodging the users' request than it would take to actually just implement it.
I could never recommend SourceTree to anyone, knowing that it's made by a company so willing to string people along like this. It has been years of the same cookie cutter responses to the easiest feature request.
