cloning repository from

Can you please tell me what is wrong with my process.
I am trying to clone a repository on and keep getting fatal errors when trying to clone … here is my process

In Pantheon:

=>go to dev
=>ensure connection mode is set to Git
=>copy ssh URL (entirely including ssh:// )
(I have confirmed with Pantheon that these steps are correct...)

In Source Tree: (Have tried generating SSH keys using both SSH-1(RSA) & SSH-2 RSA)

=> clone repository
=> enter ssh URL in source Path / URL field
=> have tried with both generated SSH key & without SSH key
=> failure prompt:

“This is not a valid source path / URL
Bad URL passed to RAY layer. Unrecongnized URL scheme for ‘ssh:// …
at … \SourceTree\toole\svn.[l line 45
abort no suitable response from remote hg!
fatal ’~/repository.git plasterdog14’ does not appear to be a git repository
fatal: Could not read from remote repository

Please make sure you have correct access rights

and the repository exists"


... yet I know that the Pantheon environment is a Git repo and that access rights exist!


Any help would be appreciated

This line seems out of place: "abort no suitable response from remote hg!"

"hg" is Mercurial, but you say you are using Git and the next message claims the repository isn't a valid Git repo.

Make sure SourceTree is set to use embedded git, or that it is properly evoking a system Git installation if that is how you want it configured.
