I am setting up Xamarin with Team Foundation Service + git to develop iOS apps. I have tried many different settings trying to set up my TFS + git integration on our MAC with no avail. I keep getting exceptions of either not authorized or failed to fetch.

I am going to list all steps I took to be as complete as possible.

  1. First of all, I created a hosted TFS account and added a New Team Project + Git
  2. I then had to create alternative login credentials since you cannot have an @ symbol in your login info. To set up alternate creds in Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS), click on your name on the top right -> My Profile -> Credentials
  3. After enabling the alternative credentials open Xamarin Studio. In my case I had a solution that I wanted to add so I had my solution file open as well.
  4. Under the Version Control menu item select Publish (Only available with solution file open)
  5. Select the Registered Repositiories tab and select Add
  6. Enter an appropriate name. Select https protocol.
  7. Enter your hosted TFS URL ie.
  8. For port, enter 443.
  9. The path will be: /DefaultCollection/_git/ + project name (exactly as you typed it including spaces)
  10. User will be the alternative username you created in step 2. Click OK on both open windows.
  11. You will be prompted to confirm publishing. Select OK.
  12. You will then be prompted for your password. Enter you alternative password you created in step 2. If you accidentally enter the wrong password here, you must delete the entry from your key chain. Instructions can be found here

Your TFS + git integration with Xamarin Studio should be complete!
