      Hi Mathew,


      Thanks for the blog. I'm just adding more details to the blog.

      If anyone is still facing issue in connecting TFS to cloud connector or BTP, please try the below steps:

      Steps to connect TFS Git to your BTP trial account:

      1. Download the certificate which you are using to access the TFS page

      Go to your TFS page in edge private window and click on the site details icon.

      Then click on connection is secure.

      Click on show certificate




      Click on details and export the certificate as DER file






      2. Add certificate to cloud connector.

      Now go to cloud connector-> Configuration->On premise->allowlist and add the downloaded certificate



      3. Add TFS system to the cloud connector

      Add TFS system to the cloud connector by specifying the host and port and other details like below

      Now check your tfs connection is reachable in cloud connector

      4. Add destination to BTP trial account.

      Add destination in BTP trial account and check the connection in Trial account

      In the url enter the url in https://<hostname>:<port> format


      Then follow the steps from Mathew to add the authentication. After that the projects can be pushed to git using the terminal from business application studio.
