I would like to create an individual assignment at GitHub Classroom. Despite I have keyed in the assignment name as follow:
I’m getting the following error:
Invalid repository name, use the format owner/name.
The name of the template repository is “https://github.com/PU-SDS/git-and-github-training”
Any ideas on how can I fix this problem?
I haven’t seen that error before, that’s odd. One thing I noticed, your repo isn’t properly configured as a template repo. That should have given a different error, but fixing that up may help resolve the issue.
Please see https://help.github.com/en/github/creating-cloning-and-archiving-repositories/creating-a- for instructions on how to set https://github.com/PU-SDS/git-and-github-training to be a template repository. Let me know if this fixes the issue!
Unfortunately, the error still exists despite I have set the repository to become a template repository.
Since the error message is related to an invalid repository name, whether an individual assignment that has title “assignment-1” is acceptable?
That title should be fine. Do you still get the error when using a different template repository?
Strangely, I can create an assignment now without any changes from the previous settings
Very strange! Glad it’s working now, let us know if this happens again and hopefully we can figure out why it happens!
