Below are typical issues that may occur when you are working with Git:

  • You misspelled the Git repository URL, user name or password.

    To learn how to change the URL, see Git Console.

  • A proxy server is specified incorrectly in the ReadyAPI settings. So, if you are unable to add files to or take them from the repository, check your proxy settings:

    • Select Preferences on ReadyAPI’s main toolbar.

    • In the subsequent dialog, select the Proxy group on the left. You will see the proxy settings on the right.
