GitHub Enterprise Token giving Incorrect Credentials

Answered

I have git and the enterprise version of GitHub up and running from the terminal. However, for some reason I cannot get it working from PyCharm.. I must have done something wrong.

From my enterprise website, I can create a private access token for an api, giving it write/read access. I saved this token there, and copied it into the "token" field in pycharm, along with the enterprise server. But the message I get is "incorrect credentials".

[I am unable to use my username and password to sign in and create a token, I guess this makes sense to me that I need to create it from the enterprise side.. ]

 

any help appreciated.

I am having the same problem - I can authenticate with git but not with our GitHub enterprise. I suspect this is due to our enterprise being on an insecure connection (http, not https).

What scopes does the token have assigned?

> I can authenticate with git

Do you mean git on the commadn lien can connect fine, but not the IDE?

> I suspect this is due to our enterprise being on an insecure connection

If your server accepts http, it should not be the problem. If the error is the same - could be some permissions issue.

Yes, if you can't use your login and password to ket IDE create a token, you should generate it manually. BTW, why can't you use your credentials?

Hi Dmitriy,

> Do you mean git on the command line can connect fine, but not the IDE?

I can work with my company's GitHub enterprise (close, push, pull, etc) perfectly from within PyCharm same as command line. The problem is specifically when attempting to create a "GitHub" connection within PyCharm either at "Settings -> Version Control -> GitHub" or "Tools -> Tasks & Contexts -> Configure Servers".

I can't speak for Elena, but I am "unable to use my username and password" in the sense that when I try to create the GitHub connection using them I get a message that the connection is refused. I also tried creating a personal access token manually with full admin permissions to everything (all scopes enabled), and when I try to use it in PyCharm to configure a GitHub connection I get the message "Invalid authentication data. Connection refused.". This is the same message whether I use my username/password or my manually generated personal access token.
