Migrating Codeplex Projects to GitHub fix!

I’ve been trying for months to migrate my Codeplex Projects over to GitHub, but always got stuck at this step on GitHub (trying to get credentials for CodePlex:


I enter my Codeplex username and password, but it always comes back and asks me for the credentials again, they never work.

Well it’s been YEARS since I’ve checked anything into Codeplex, and I remembered that back in the day, I had to connect with different credentials in TFS, so how do you find those?

  • Navigate to the project in Codplex
  • Choose Source
  • Choose the “Connect” option
  • Look at the Username field, in my case it was SND\SOMETHING_CP

Using that username and my normal CodePlex password, I was finally able to get the migration completed for one of my projects, only 21 more to go….
