When my students go to accept my latest assignment, it tries to create a new repository based off of a template but then errors out with the cryptic message: “You are forbidden from performing this action on github.com”
Is anyone else running into this issue? Is this just a temporary github bug?
I’m seeing this too. Everything was working fine until roughly 2pm PST today and now nobody can accept any assignments
@d12 Any status on this suddenly breaking?
This is currently blocking my 300+ students.
It just started working again, not sure what happened there but it must’ve been something on the Github end.
Is anyone from the GitHub team going to chime in here on issues like this? I have now the same thing but luckily I’m testing it with my second account. There seems to be no explanation as to why this is happening.
I find the issue for this one - the GitHub classroom needed access to the organization which contained the starter code template for the assignment. (Even though the template was a public repository - I had to grant access to the entire organization).
For clarity, the edge case here is that we have a ??? organization for instructors and teaching staff and ???-semester-homework organization for students to work on homework. GitHub classroom had access to the student organization but needed access to the organization which contained the (public) starter code.
