fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://my-repo-url.git/'

Hi There,

During the past two weeks, after given access to stash and the repo I've started facing the problem in pushing to stash. I'm able to clone the repo, pull from origin master, commit to changes, create and add new files but when it comes the time to push to Stash either a git push or git push origin master don't work.

the returned error is: fatal: Authentication failed for 'repository url'

 

Here is the my terminal code:

AFTER COMMITTING….

On branch master

Your branch is ahead of 'origin/master' by 42 commits.

  (use "git push" to publish your local commits)

 

nothing to commit, working directory clean

ohml-USERNAME:PROJECT-FOLDER USERNAME$ git status <—((CHECKED BRANCH STATUS))

On branch master

Your branch is ahead of 'origin/master' by 42 commits.

  (use "git push" to publish your local commits)

 

nothing to commit, working directory clean

ohml-USERNAME:PROJECT-FOLDER USERNAME$ git remote -v

origin  https://REPO-URL-HERE.git (fetch)

origin  https://REPO-URL-HERE.git (push)

ohml-USERNAME:PROJECT-FOLDER USERNAME$ git push <—((PUSHING))

warning: push.default is unset; its implicit value is changing in

Git 2.0 from 'matching' to 'simple'. To squelch this message

and maintain the current behavior after the default changes, use:

 

  git config --global push.default matching

 

To squelch this message and adopt the new behavior now, use:

 

  git config --global push.default simple

 

When push.default is set to 'matching', git will push local branches

to the remote branches that already exist with the same name.

 

In Git 2.0, Git will default to the more conservative 'simple'

behavior, which only pushes the current branch to the corresponding

remote branch that 'git pull' uses to update the current branch.

 

See 'git help config' and search for 'push.default' for further information.

(the 'simple' mode was introduced in Git 1.7.11. Use the similar mode

'current' instead of 'simple' if you sometimes use older versions of Git)

 

Password for 'https://USERNAME_EMAILDOMAINNAME@stash.acd.com': <—((TYPED MY STASH USERNAME PW))

fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://MY-REPO-URL-HERE.git/' <—((ERROR))

ohml-USERNAME:PROJECT-FOLDER USERNAME$

 

Thanks is advance for your help.

Alberto

A few things to check:

  • Your username is your username, not your e-mail address.
  • Is your password correct?
  • Is your account locked?
  • Do you have write permission to the repo?
  • Is there some firewall between you and the server that would stop the authentication?

Thanks for your answer Balazs Szakmary. - Password is correct - Account is unlocked - Do have permissions to write - Waiting for a response regarding the firewall. My username is correct I guess, did a more ~/.gitconfig and here is what I got.. [filter "hawser"] clean = git hawser clean %f smudge = git hawser smudge %f required = true [user] name = USERNAME MYNAME = MYNAME <------------- do you know if this should be here? email = USERNAME@EMAILDOMAIN.com

This .gitconfig looks weird. The MYNAME line should not be there and the name= should be your full name, not your user.
