Sourcetree does not list private GitHub repos

Daniel Pfeffer February 22, 2019

I've added my GitHub account to the remote repositories in Sourcetree. Much to my surprise, I cannot see my private repositories.

After some research, I found out, that the API call to https://api.github.com/users/<username>/repos only lists my public repositories - and this is what Sourcetree seems to call.

A call of https://api.github.com/user/repos?access_token=512295a0afb73bdd1c076a00c69f8abcd12345 (fill in a valid Access Token) instead shows all public/private repos.

 

Can you please add the option to specify an access token, so that private repositories are listed as well?

Hi

Which version of Sourcetree are you using?

Sourcetree for Windows will add credentials, but via headers rather than as part of the query string.

Hello,

I am using version 3.0.17 on Windows.

Hi

I've tried reproducing this but currently I can't.

Are the private repositories ones you own or ones you have access through an organization or owned by others? 

Daniel Pfeffer March 13, 2019

Both - and unfortunately I am shown neither in Sourcetree.

 

Have you tried to setup a private repository in Github and did it show up in Sourcetree?

Hi

We have identified the issue and have a fix in progress. It probably won't make the next release but should be in the one following.

It wasn't immediately obvious as we have a large number of repositories and the privates ones do show up when you search.

I'm glad you could reproduce what I was experiencing.

 

And in fact, I get my private repositories listed, when using the search function.

Looking forward to the fix.

Just to hop onto the back of this, I have experienced the exact same issue and I can successfully search for my own private repos but I cannot see a private repo that I have forked from another user.

Fix should be going out to Beta testers in the next few days.

Any update on a fix for this @minnsey  I added my Github account to Sourcetree today on my Mac and I'm unable to view the private repos I own on Github
