App password for bitbucket from Rstudio

I use bitbucket as a remote depository of R projects and I push and pull from Rstudio.
I recently have add a message telling me that using an app password will be needed from the 1st March. I have created an App password as explained here:
I can see it from my bitbucket account online but I must have missed a step because I am not prompted to use this passwork when pushing from Rstudio and I still see the message asking me to activate the app password.

Would someone be able to help ?

Hello @G973 ,

Welcome to Atlassian Community.

I've reviewed your case and from my understanding you have created an AppPassword, but your not being prompted to provide it when pushing to your repository.

This behavior is most likely due for you currently having git cached credentials configured in your environment, which probably contains your old account password, and thus is not prompting you to provide a new one.

There are several ways to configure cached credentials in git, either trough credential helpers (which vary between different operating system, like Windows, MacOS and Linux), or the ones implemented by git itself.

That said, my suggestion would be for you trying to clear any possible git credentials cache you currently have on your system : 

  1. Windows: Navigate to Credential Manager and clear stored credentials related to Bitbucket Cloud.
  2. Mac OS X: Navigate to Keychain Access and clear stored credentials related to Bitbucket Cloud

Once you clear the credential cache, you should probably be asked to provide new credentials on the subsequent push/pull to your repository, and when prompted for credentials you can then provide the AppPassword you have already created.

Hope that helps. Let me know if you run into any issues trying the suggestion above.

Thank you @G973 .

Kind regards,

Patrik S
