Authentication failed while cloning repository from bit bucket

Priya Sharma Dec 19, 2017

I am getting following authentication failed error while cloning repo from bit bucket.

$ git clone https://sharpriy@bitbucket.org/humense-team/k2ls.git
  Cloning into 'k2ls'...
  Password for 'https://sharpriy@bitbucket.org':
  remote: Invalid username or password. If you log in via a third party service you   must ensure you have an account password set in your account profile.
 fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://sharpriy@bitbucket.org/humense-team/k2ls.git/'

I have given gmail password for authentication since i use to login to atlassian account using 'log in with gmail' option.

I have also added SSH key to bit bucket account and configured username and email address using following commands

git config --global user.name <username>

git config --global user.email <email address>

 

Please help me to resolve this issue

Hi Priya,

For SSH try using

git clone git@bitbucket.org/humense-team/k2ls.git

 For username and password the error shows

If you log in via a third party service you must ensure you have an account password set in your account profile.

That command needs one small formatting fix:

git clone git@bitbucket.org:humense-team/k2ls.git
