Unable to convert to GitHub

Hi, I followed the instructions here for conversion to GitHub but I’m getting the following errors:
Migration to GitHub failed: Error: Request authorsUnmatchedInGithub failed with message: Authentication failed. You may not have permission to access the repository or the repository may have been archived.
A repository was created on GitHub but the migration did not complete. You will need to manually remove repository XXXX.
I am authenticated and was able to convert couple of projects but I faced the same errors and only succeeded after several tries. I click ‘convert’, it fails, I go to GitHub and remove the repository and then try again. I’m unable to convert the 3rd project, I just keep getting this error.

Hi Sergei,

is the project you are trying to convert public? Can you please share a link?

Also if you try again, does it still fail?

Thank you very much.

Still fails. I checked it as private for conversion. After the failure and before trying again I have to remove the repository in github as it’s created empty. Like I mentioned earlier, I was able to convert two other repositories but only on Nth try after seeing the same errors. With this repo I’ve already tried more than 10 times.

So, basically, the API call to create the repo in Github succeeds. This means the authentication works fine. The next call to match authors fails. As a result, an empty repo is created.

Hi Sergei,

we have identified the source of the error. Please bear with us, we are working to fix this.
