Not able to clone from external github on SAP HCP Web IDE

I am trying to clone a repository from external github in SAP HCP Web IDE. Earlier I was able to do it, However, now when I try to do it, the popup doesn't contain additional sections like Connection and Authentication. It only contains the URL.

After I enter the URL, I get below error.

Could not connect to the Git server. Please verify the connection and try again.

Can you please help on how to use github as external repository.

    Had the same issue. For us, the solution was to change the 'Git Committer' settings.

    Cheers, Johannes

    Generally it is simple as pumkin pie and made even simpler with authentication tokens (look for a blog on SAP community about that )

    Usually if you are using https:// to connect to github to clone then you should be promoted for username and password.

    Given you have connected before I assume there is not network / firewall issue.
