Error importing git

Postby mohamedosharif » Tue Jan 08, 2019 9:02 pm

Hello All,

I keep running into this error when trying to import a git folder.

org.eclipse.core.runtime.CoreException: Connecting Git team provider failed. See log for details.
at org.eclipse.egit.core.op.ConnectProviderOperation.execute(
at org.eclipse.egit.ui.internal.clone.GitImportWizard$
at org.eclipse.egit.ui.internal.clone.GitImportWizard.importProjects(
at org.eclipse.egit.ui.internal.clone.GitImportWizard.access$2(
at org.eclipse.egit.ui.internal.clone.GitImportWizard$
at org.eclipse.jface.operation.ModalContext$
Contains: Error connecting project msharifdev, suggested path '/.git' do not match found Git repositories '[RepositoryMapping[<empty> -> '.git', absolute path: '/Users/msharif/CloverETL/msharifdev/.git' ]]'.

anyone else have this issue? I'm on a mac if that makes a difference.

Hi Mohamed,

Based on the error provided it appears to be a bug in Eclipse itself (see Eclipse bug 324145).


  • First clone the repository on your local machine
  • Then Import -> CloverDX -> Import external CloverDX project
  • If the project is a CloverDX Server project you will need to choose the option to Convert to Server Project
