Cannot search my organization's repos when 2FA is configured

I have 2FA setup by my organization on I can see all the projects, but as soon as I type anything in Search (when trying to add repo), red icon appears over my account with ToolTip "Unable to read repositories... Validation failed"

I am having the same issue.

ST version 3.3.9

Windows 10

GitHub OAuth.


I can see the list of organization repos and "load more button" works, but search does not work - as soon as I type something existing the list gets and does not recover until I remove all contents from the search-box. The list is empty even if I type in full existing repo name.

On the firs picture there is "blog" repo (the first one).


But when I type it in - all blanc. And I have a red mark on my portrait, whatever that means.image.png

I can't reproduce this at the moment, I'm assuming you using the OAuth authentication option, rather than Basic Auth?

Again I'm assuming you get a green confirmation that your credentials are OK in the Tools/Options/Authentication tab when you edit the account?

 I am using basic authentication. I can see all organization's repos. But when I start to type anything in the Search field, I am getting my icon Red icon'ed and list of repos disappears.
