Github connector can not connect repository

Hi PBI team,


I just realized that we could not use github connector for repositories that has dash character in its name. Cause i have tried with another name and it's working but with some names like:  abc-def. It will return error message even though i have permission in that repos


Details: "The GitHub owner/repository provided could not be found or you do not have sufficent access. Please check the values and try again. "


Checked with PBI Desktop and Github Content pack

Status: Needs Info



I cannot repro the same issue on my side. Please refer to my screeenshot below. My repository is abc-def and I can get data properly both with latest July 2017 version of Power BI Desktop and Power BI Service.

And according to, dash character should be supported.

Oh, I think the root cause that error repository is in private state. Does our connector/content pack support  repo in private status?
