Git sync failing - too many redirects or authentication replays

Product: PowerShell Universal
Version: 2.10.2

Recenlty reconnected our Gitlab repo back up as a PushOnly connection. It showed a successful sync for changes made since it was disconnected, but now it fails every minute and throws this error in the logs

Here is the config in the json

Our git server doesn’t have any redirects that I know of. Just a basic GitLab instance with LDAP auth.

This error is a bit misleading. It typically means something is wrong with the credentials.

There is an outstanding issue on the lib2gitsharp repo about this. Some mention that reverting to an older version worked for them. PSU is using the latest version: 0.27.0-preview-0182.

I just verified the credentials work correctly in the webUI for GitLab (copied and paste the username and password directly from the appsetttings.json).

I removed the dedicated Universal Credentials for Git and used my account and still get the same error.

Ok. I’ll open an issue for this. Others have definitely seen this problem.

Can you please try the git remote format I suggested?

I’ll respond on the issue.
