Google Colab cannot access Github private repositories
Update: Colab now supports Github private repositories.
to clarify: you have to go to open notebook and then to the github tab, there you can enable private repositories. After this you can save your notebook to a private repository.
I encountered the same problem. You should give colab access to your private data to fix it:
- Go to colab main page colab.research.google.com.
- Go to GitHub tab.
- Check the checkbox with the label "include private repos".
- Then colab will request access to your private GitHub data, you should provide it.
- After this you should see private repos in a list when you try to save a notebook in GitHub.
