    Default Help IntelliJ IDEA communicate with GitHub

    I am able to log onto GitHub on the internet and I have permissions to see the project (I am even able to download it in zip file format). But somehow I am unable to make the connection to GitHub through the IDE of Intellij IDEA.

    I have set up the connection -- properly, apparently -- using the "Settings" dialog in the IDE on the "GetHub" option under "Version Control", because when I click on the "Test" button, there is a pop up message that says "Connection successful"

    I followed the steps on this website:
    Java Intellj with GitHub
    ... for the most part. The only reason I did not follow the final steps to the letter was because I already had a project open and I had to close the IDE and reopen it because of this.

    Now, in the dialog that comes up at the beginning when you restart Intellij IDEA with the title "Welcome to IntelliJ IDEA", I am prompted with "Check out from Version Control" but when I try to connect, nothing happens. Then, when I click on the "Events" prompt, it comes up saying:

    Clone Failed
    Could not read from remote repository.

    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    If he (we) did have any answers they would be provided. He was letting others in the forum know that your question was cross-posted. It's considered bad etiquette to post at multiple forums and not let each forum know where you have posted the question.

    I found what as causing the problem and the answer has been found. From the Welcome window, there is the option to clone a repository. The default URL options that are populated and presented in a drop down list have the wrong format for a URL. They each start with "git@github.com..." which is not correct.

    I put the proper URL address to our repository on github.com in this field, and soon everything fell into place.

    because it wastes folks time to spend time answering a question or researching the answer for someone when someone else on another forum has already answered it. So it's a courtesy.
