Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!
I found this link from the official site of TortoiseGit:
and their doc has as an answer this StackOverflow thread:
Also, in case you would like to read more about the App password, you can access the following Bitbucket doc:
I hope this helps, but please let me know if you have any other questions about this subject.
This GUI client is not developed by Atlassian, so we’re not aware of all options related to authentication and also if there are differences in different versions of the product. Such a manual/guide would need to be created by TortoiseGit who has developed this product. In case you would like to contact TortoiseGit support, you can access this page: https://tortoisegit.org/support/
I worked out the way it works now.
The trick I didn't work out is that I use my same username as my normal BitBucket username, and then use App Password, instead of the normal login password.
I am not getting the warning message after the Push/Pull so I assume I have done it correctly.
Step A: Settings > Saved Data > Clear the Authentication data.
Step B : Remove Old Password under Remote URL (if entered)
Step C : Setup new Credential
1. Select Git > Credential > Select "G" for Global
2. Enter your BitBucket Repository URL
3. Enter your normal BitBucket username
4. Select Apply
Step D : Then when you Push/Pull
Enter your "App Password" which you have generated from BitBucket from the link
I hope that helps others.
I followed the steps and it worked. Many thanks.
I have some little remarks:
Step B: In the balloon: Shouldn't the "userid" be removed, instead of the "password" ?
Step C: The selection of the helper (3) is not contained in the text. Following "Apply" is number 5 in the picture and number 4 in the text.
Thank you. While I got this to work, my experience differed from @paulrainbow 's instructions:
Beginning on April 4th, we will be implementing push limits. This means that your push cannot be completed if it is over 3.5 GB. If you do attempt to complete a push that is over 3.5 GB, it will fail...
