I have two organisations, and can create repos within them, and push to these repos.
For any new organisations I create, I can make edits via GitHub.com, but when I try to push local changes I get:
remote: Permission to [new-org]/[new-repo].git denied to [user-name].
fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/[new-org]/[new-repo].git/': The requested URL returned error: 403
I get the above issue if I try to push from command line or from SmartGit.
Pushing to repos from my existing organisations works fine in both cases.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Ok, from a different PC I get the same 403 denied error when I push to a repo under the new organisations. But, I can push changes from the older organisations.
Ok. I've just run a test from a MS Windows VM, and get the same problem. Can push to repos from old orgs, but not the new ones.
Ok, I was running a further trial, on a Linux VM.
I installed GitKraken, and in the GitHub authorisation process I had to indicate when organisations it could access.
The new repo had a red Cross against it. I selected it, to allow GitKraken access to that organisation. GitKraken was then able to push to the new repo.
I then received an email telling me the GitHub authorisation had been added. It included a link to this page https://github.com/settings/connections/applications/
From that page I was able to view authorised OAuth apps. SmartGit (my normal Git client was listed). When I went into the page for that app, I saw it wasn't allowed access to my new organisation. I authorised access.
From that point on, I was able to push from either SmartGit or the command-line.
