Can not clone DevOps repo


A very basic question, I hope :)

I am new into DevOps, and have created a new project, Test2, with a few files for testing.

Now, I try to hook Sourcetree up to this project / Clone it.

I have succeeded to make a DevOps account with PAT authentication, using the "" address.

So far so good.


Now I want to clone the project:

- From DevOps project, I go to "Repo" and hit  "Clone".

- Then I paste the URL to Sourcetree "Clone" URL.

- Error message: "This is not a valid sourcepath / URL

I have tried with different URL's, using the "visualstudio" address in different combinations, but nothing works.


Cloning with command line / GIT bash works fine.


Can anyone give me a hint, how I can clone my DevOps repo in Sourcetree?

Thanks in advance!

Additional info:


When I add a GIT project in DevOps, it shows up i Sourcetree "Remote repositories". So connection/account seems OK.

If I hit the "Clone" button right next to this project, it inserts this URL into the Clone tab:

And I get this error "Output:
Error: fatal: Authentication failed for ''

I'm having a similar problem, did you get your problem resolved?  Also are you using Windows or Mac?

Hi Liam

No, unfortunately, no response from this forum, and I have not succeeded my self either.

I am using Windows.
