Cloning the Git Repository on Eclipse Transport Error

+2 votes

I have a web application on Bluemix and linked with a git repository.

I'm working on Eclipse and made some changes on the project. Now, I have the last version of the project in Local and Bluemix side and need to update the repository.

As a first step, I am trying to clone the Git repository (on Eclipse). After I fill the URI and authentication fields, I am getting the error that is shown below. I can pass over SSL error by setting http.sslVerify=false but cannot solve the others.

Try changing the URL.
Yes I did, it did not work!

Are you able to clone the repo from command line Git?

Yes, I have successfully cloned it using command line Git. But what I do not understand is why am I not able to clone is using Eclipse.

Try installing TortoiseGit, execute a few commands and then try again with Eclipse. Might work, not sure. I read this somewhere.

Check if you've switched on two-factor authentication ON in Git. If you have then when you connect from browser it should authenticate properly and connect. But when you do it from eclipse it only checks normal credentials and fails to authenticate.

Change the protocol from https to http while cloning the repository from git .This worked for me. I faced the same problem and got resolved by doing this.
I got the same error. I'll try this and let you know. Thanks

I am facing the same issue. Were you able to resolve this?

Hi @Km.

Kalgi's solution worked for me. Did you try that?
You are a F***ing Genius
