Error Jenkins: Failed to connect to repository

I'm unable to connect Jenkins on a github repo.

When I specify the repository URL, Jenkins returns the following error message:

Failed to connect to repository : Failed to connect to //Zulaikha12/git-test.git (status = 407)

This happens when you create the ssh files with the root user access. This makes root the owner of the files.

The solution is to just change the ownership to the Jenkins user.

chown jenkins 
chown jenkins id_rsa
