Unable to add repository in the git agent

​Hello Team,

I am unable to add a git repository in the Git Agent. The repository is public but I am unable to clone it. The SRL Git agent is throwing the below error:

"Failed to retrieve branch information from specified repository.

fatal: unable to access 

error:14094419:SSL routines:ssl3_read_bytes:tlsv1 alert access denied"

I tried passing the git URL with and without creds but I get the same error. Please suggest.


I also tried the same using GitHub desktop. I have 2 GitHub accounts, one is enterprize which I am able to clone using GitHub desktop and I've another personal account which is throwing me the below error when I try to clone a repository:

More details may be available in the Windows System event log."

Hi Abhilash,


Are you using a proxy network?

Can you please check the proxy setting and make sure proxy configure correctly in GIT agent UI.
