Teamcity to github List remote refs failed not authorized jgit

Using github for windows on same machine, with same credentials works fine. Can pull/clone.

However teamcity installed as a windows service on the same machine, returns the following error

List remote refs failed: org.eclipse.jgit.errors.TransportException: https://github.com/my-private-repo.git: not authorized

Answer

In teamcity, in the project VCS Root, if the authentication method is based on ssh public/private key, then the fetch URL should be like git@github.com:.../repository.git. Using https:// in the fetch URL causes the error message:

List remote refs failed: org.eclipse.jgit.errors.TransportException..

to occur.
