Hi,

Could you please clarify what plugin you use for Azure DevOps integration in Rider (and its version in `Preferences | Plugins`)? 

Also, please clarify Rider version.

Thanks for the information.

Please try to use IntelliJ git plugin instead and clone your repository via Git not via Azure DevOps Git.

Is there an update on this? Why does it not allow to change the username?

Hello, 

It is indeed not possible to edit the username field in the login dialog (https://github.com/microsoft/azure-devops-intellij/issues/428). Please try to use IntelliJ git plugin instead and clone your repository via Git not (Azure DevOps Git by Microsoft).

Answers here are not helpful. I use the bundled Git plugin, not the one by Microsoft, and still cannot change username. There are no IntelliJ alternative in the market place.

Hello Thomas,
I'm sorry for not responding long time.
I double-checked this issue.
Now I see that if you put a new style url while cloning, it contains a user name `https://sofiabyzova0401@dev.azure.com/sofiabyzova0401/TestProject/_git/TestProject`. This is why the form does not allow you to sign in.
If you put there an old style url like `https://sbyzova.visualstudio.com/testGitProject/_git/testGitProject`, then it is possible to change the username in this form.

If you use a generated password to access your repository, does it work for you? Are you able to login without changing the predefined username?
