Failing to connect Azure DevOps repository

Brass Contributor

Hi all,

I've been looking at the "Repositories (Preview)" tab, under "Content management" and I get stuck at the following problem.
When I try to add my repository, I am met by this:


I checked that I am logged in with the correct credentials. (as explained in this post

How come I can't see my organization (which I am owner of) ?

My guess was that it was due to some early-stage preview issues, so I have been postponing this post for a while, but now I am too curious, so I would like to know if anyone else has succeeded connecting a repository. :)

Found a solution.
Press the "Click here and enter your repository URL manually"

You have to be aware that you can't just copy in your URL from the repository. You need to follow the exact syntax provided as greyed out text in the text-box. This includes a '/MyTestOrg/' inside the URL, which is not present if you just copy the URL from the DevOps repositories page.

Happy you found a solution! Any chance you were using Azure Lighthouse?
This is common when trying to deploy resources from the "main" tenant, sometimes I accidentally find myself in the "visiting" tenant, where my resources don't exist/can't be shared. =)

I was not using Azure Lighthouse, no. :)
