Check out github repository in ADO pipeline [YAML]

The issue is in the repositories.endpoint setting. The endpoint setting should reference an Azure Devops Project Service connection. A project service connection is a reference to a service or resource at the project level in Azure DevOps that allows you to store credentials etc for referencing resources and services safely without the need for storing credentials for those resources in your code. Specific Azure pipeline tasks and azure-pipelines.yaml properties can easily reference the service connections.

To set up a service connection, click Project settings at the bottom of the page in the browser while in your Azure DevOps project. Then in the left menu under Pipelines click Service connections. At the top right of the page click New service connection and choose GitHub and click Next

On the next page, select Grant authorization if it is not already selected. Choose AzurePipelines for the OAuth Configuration and click Authorize. Confirm the GitHub pop-up and enter your GitHub credentials to do so. Next click Authorize Azure pipelines on the GitHUb authorization dialog. Then back on the Azure DevOps page take note of the service connection name for reference later on and click Save to finish creating the service connection.

Then back to your azure-pipelines.yaml edit as below:

  - repository: MyGitHubRepo
    type: github
    endpoint: name_of_service_connection_you_created
    name: github-user-name/repo-name
    ref: master

Make sure to set the type to GitHub and take care to set the name value to the combination of your GitHub user name and repository name like username/reponame.

Reference for the repository resource in azure-pipelines.yaml can be found in the YAML schema
