I was able to workaround this issue using a custom script :
The problem was BITRISEIO_PULL_REQUEST_REPOSITORY_URL was not called before git failed, and it was a ssh url but the access to the repo is https only.

firstly, I transform my ssh url into a https one


envman add --key GIT_SOURCE_REPOSITORY_URL --value "$httpsUrl"

secondly I called it in a script to clone manually

git clone $GIT_SOURCE_REPOSITORY_URL --branch $BITRISE_GIT_BRANCH --single-branch --depth 1 .
