We have a GIT based web-project that is stored in Azure DevOps, previously called VSTS, and want to use Katalon’s integrated GIT functionality that is based on EGit.
In Katalon, I choose ‘Clone Project’, fill in the URL, username and password and click next, Katalon is waiting for a reply. I get to the next screen with no branches shown. If I try to filter this list I get this error: “Unable to connect to Git Repository. Please go back and check your Git Repository URL, User and Password then try again.”
Katalon Studio is able to connect to the internet: for instance, it can activate its license and publish test results to Katalon Analytics. But I can’t get Katalon Studio to clone our GIT repository in Azure DevOps, even after this topic: Cloning a repo in VSTS issue that mentions creating a a Personal Access Token or using alternative credentials.
I think it might have to do with the two-factor authentication that we have in place. When using the command-line GIT tool, I get a Microsoft popup which asks me to log in and choose an extra authentication method. I could do that by using a phone text message, call or thru the Microsoft authenticator app. I don’t get that popup when trying to connect with Katalon Studio.
Can Katalon Studio or EGit handle 2-factor authentication or is it something else that’s blocking?
