    Hello @PRADEEPCHEEKATLA-MSFT

    Actually, I have to grant access for user in synapse access control, in a role, like synapse artefact user.

    Anyway, I think that message "The personal access token is invalid. Please provide a valid token." could be better.

    Hello @Robson Pelegrini ,

    Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    There are a few possible reasons why you might be getting this error message when trying to connect a GitHub repository to a Synapse project. Here are some things you can try:

    • Make sure that you are using a personal access token (PAT) with the correct permissions. In order to connect a GitHub repository to Synapse, you will need to create a PAT with the repo scope. This will give the PAT access to all repository-level actions in the repository, including read and write access.
    • Check that the PAT has not expired. PATs have a maximum lifetime of one year, after which they will expire. If your PAT has expired, you will need to create a new one in order to continue using it.
    • Make sure that you are using the correct PAT. If you have multiple PATs available, it's possible that you might be using the wrong one. Double-check that you are using the correct PAT for the repository you are trying to connect to.
    • Check that the PAT has not been revoked. If you have revoked the PAT, or if it has been deleted, it will no longer be valid and you will need to create a new one.
    • Please try to revoke the personal access token and create a new one for your user account and see if that helps to resolve your issue.

    If you have checked all of these things and are still having trouble, it's possible that there might be an issue with the Synapse integration itself. In this case, you may want to try to open a support ticket for further assistance.

    Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
