Can not log in to Bitbucket in Visual Studio


Suddenly I did stop login from Visual Studio.

My user and password works correctly when login from website.

The ouput says:


git: 'credential-manager-core' is not a git command. See 'git --help'.
Logon failed, use ctrl+c to cancel basic credential prompt.
cannot spawn /c/program files (x86)/microsoft visual studio/2019/community/common7/ide/commonextensions/microsoft/teamfoundation/team explorer/Git/mingw32/libexec/git-core/git-askpass.exe: No such file or directory
Git failed with a fatal error.

@Jesus Barrio this is most likely related to the removal of account passwords for Basic authentication with Git over HTTPS and API. You can find more details in our community post below.

What are the alternatives to sync Visual Studio with Bitbucket?

To log on from the visual studio extension I was using:

But it did not worked.

@Jesus Barrio app passwords do not work with email as username. You need to use your Bitbucket Cloud username in order to successfully authenticate so that you can sync. Please let me know if this works

Hi Jesus,

The same issue is appearing at my side. I'm providing bitbucket username and app password but it is not working. Is there any specific format of providing bitbucket user name or app password?

the password from app passwords

It only works if you use app password BitBucket's (

First, I used app password Atlassian's but it didn't work.

@Jesus Barrio I also wanted to warn you that this VS Studio Bitbucket extension is not owned by us and from my research appears to not be maintained anymore. For such unmaintained extensions I would exercise caution in using them as they may potentially have more issues out of our scope in the future.

With VS 2022 the plugin does not work and there is no answer from ATLASSIAN for getting this features as supported by Github's VS plugin: GitHub Extension for Visual Studio - Visual Studio Marketplace

I think this is a really bad situation for teams using Visual Studio for development.
