W7 - Cannot See GitHub Remote Repositories



I'm using Sourcetree version 3.0.17 on Windows 7 (and git version, and have created an SSH key for my GitHub account (and added it to the keychain and GitHub), but I cannot see any of the remote repositories to clone. I have tried both OAuth and basic (which solved the issue on my Macbook).

It also doesn't work when I use HTTPS with either OAuth or basic. I have also tried deleting and readding the account. When I use `ssh -T` in Git Bash I can see confirmation that I have connected to GitHub.

Any help would be appreciated.

You need a GitHub account setup, Tools/Options/Authentication, to be able to list remote repos. When you setup the account it should validate your credentials. If that passes you should be good to go.

Hi Michael,


Thanks for your reply. I have authenticated my GitHub account (and Sourcetree even brings me to an Atlassian page saying that it's been verified), but it wouldn't work, unfortunately, so I thought I'd ask the community.


Any ideas what might be the issue?
