Unable to view project invitation link - 404 error


I received an invitation to collaborate on a private repository. When accessing the link, I am getting a 404 not found error.

Based on my findings, the 404 error is likely to due permission rather than “page not exist”. As part of the invitation email, it asked me to confirm that I am properly logged in, which I am. However, I did change my email address maybe half a day prior to the invitation was sent out. Is it possible that the change did not propagate through the GitHub platform properly?

What can I do to resolve this issue?


Hi @haiyiliu9,

Thanks for being here! If you haven’t already, please contact us at https://github.com/contact with the info so we can look into that further. Is likely we’ll need more information and/or a copy of the e-mail invitations or other private items that can not be discussed in a public forum.
