That means you’ve already initialized…

Kindly check your repository Path…

Hello @pkumar13 - Can you try opening the same file from your documents folder and see how it goes. Please share the screenshot of your git in UiPath


please refer to the attached screenshot below.



Hello @pkumar13

Please check the below video and the similar post.

Is there any .git folder in the project?


Check if you installed this prerequisite first:

After you installed it, restart the Studio machine, and retry to see if the GIT is enabled in the Studio->Teams->GitInit

Hi @pkumar13

Check out the docs

Have you tried like this → Studio->Teams->Git Init


git init is not enabled for me…
i can’t try the above steps

git init is enabled in path mentioned under teams git init, but when i click on git init, i am getting access denied to .gitconfig error message

yes i have tried like this → Studio->Teams->Git Init
getting below mentioned error message

please help me resolve thus issue, not able to continue to work, its a blocker

Hi @pkumar13

Try to restart the uipath studio

Check out the video link


have checked above attached video also, but when i click on teams-git init i am getting below error message

i am stuck at git init step

getting above error message

But if you are removing that file (.gitconfig), it will allow you to recreate it via UiPath Studio at the Git init?

we tried that also… by removing .gitconfig file, even getting same error message

Can you give access to Everyone on that particular file via Properties → Security?


Can you try to move only the workflows to another project and open it from there?
Then try to do the git init. It should work.

Else remove the current git connection in the folder by deleting the git folder.
