In the saved setting area check for a log file vcs.log
I located the vcs.log file where you indicated. It is empty.
Has anyone successfully used SQL Developer 4 against a Git repository over the SSH protocol? If so, how?
Name changed to include [4.0 EA2]. Hoping for some help.
Any luck with this? I was trying to use 188.8.131.52 on Mac but couldn't get it to connect to BitBucket plus, afaik, it can't use a local repo either.
Unfortunately, no. I have not been able to get it to work. I have not had anyone reply with any ideas in how to get it to work.
Oracle is avertising Git integration as a feature (SQL Developer Feature List). However, it does not work.
I was able to clone from GitHub just now. However, I did it from a DEV build that's NEWER than the EA3 copy that you folks have. Internally we've been testing from a in-house GIT repository. I will endeavor to get this working in the EA3 to confirm what you have should work too, but for now this is all I can personally confirm or attest to.
I tried EA3 and received the same error as EA2.
Was there anything special syntax that you entered?
No, I just copied the URL from GitHub they supply for doing clones, and used my account user/pwd.
I did confirm the proxy settings as well.
So, I tried again and I can clone a Bitbucket repo from HTTPS fine but not from SSH. For SSH, I tried unauthenticated, authenticated with name / pass, and authenticated with a key. On Github, I can clone unauthenticated both ways but cannot clone if using SSH auth. I have tried this from Windows and Mac both.

I can clone using ssh form the github. I used windows install for git and windows bash to test that I was all set up and could clone using the windows git install with ssh.
I followed instructions here:
At step 4 I got the expected connection message
Now I tried in SQL Developer
In SQL Developer 4 I cloned using the following fields
repository name: origin
repository URL: The one I got from the github page for ssh eg email@example.com:<username>/test.git
user name: BLANK (this should not be set or you get the auth failure message)
Private key file: the rsa file (not the pub one)
Passphrase: the one you entered
Can you confirm you are using similar field values for github ssh connection
I have now tested ssh using ssh keys, and that works. I was trying to use ssh with username/password; however, that does not work.
I will use ssh keys, and recommend everyone else use ssh keys as well.
