I converted to a Google account a while ago for my BitBucket repos. Since then I haven't been able to sync any commits to BitBucket in Visual Studio 2017 Community.
Error encountered while pushing branch to the remote repository: Git failed with a fatal error.
fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://bitbucket.org/<username>/<reponame>/'
I'm very unfamiliar with git so assume I know nothing about it. Small words only please. lol
Hi Chris, I'm assuming you're using Bitbucket Cloud. Are you able to log into Bitbucket with your Google account using the web UI?
If you can access Bitbucket but are still getting authentication error in Visual Studio, then most likely the credentials you entered in VS are wrong. I couldn't find specific instructions for VS 2017 Community, but I found the articles Using Git Bitbucket with Visual Studio 2017 and Connecting Visual Studio 2013 with Git Bitbucket that I hope can help you set up the credentials correctly.
Let us know if it works!
