TF401019: The Git repository with name or ...does not exist RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running 2013.4 for months now in enterprise, multi-tier TFS environment.  I administer TFS for the org but encountered this error yesterday in my own TFS Git repo while developing and trying access TFS repo.

    TF401019: The Git repository with name or identifier <Appname> does not exist or you do not have permissions for the operation you are attempting.

    I've only found 1 reference to this error online in Microsoft Connect where I posted comment and screen shots: https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/911922/git-repos-only-occassionally-available

    Help?

  • This has been resolved.  Issue was Collection Admin rights on the repo had been set to 'Disallow'.

  • I'm getting this same error. If you're still around, can you explain how to find the "Collection Admin rights" options so I can change it from "Disallow"?

  • The settings are accessible in the web admin interface for the TFS project via the gear-looking icon.

    Think the settings are under the "Version Control" tab but going from memory right now.

  • I fixed this issue, by removing the Token credentials for git in Windows "Credential Manager" at Control Panel\User Accounts\Credential Manager. The next time I tried to connect I was asked for visualstudio.com credentials and the cloning succeed.

    Hope it helps
