Unable to enable a Bitbucket or GitHub repository

You cannot enable your repositories under the JIRA DVCS Connector page, where the account will be added but the Enable tick box is unticked.

Upon trying to tick that button, the error message states: "Unable to link selected repository. Do you have administrator permissions?"


This is because the account was added using the email address instead of the username or team account name.


Delete the current connection and use the username or team account name to connect.
