Bitbucket Pipelines fails to clone Edited

In all of my pipeline builds I get the same error:


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://x-token-auth:$<company-name>/<repository-name>.git/'

I am having the same issue also. My pipelines were working before, then suddenly it starts giving the error.

Woops, I thought this is a comment section. sorry im a newbie

Ever figure this one out @Jeff Musser ?

I'm also getting this error. 

I created a brand new pipeline for a PHP application with the following example code given:

# This is a sample build configuration for PHP.
# Check our guides at for more examples.
# Only use spaces to indent your .yml configuration.
# -----
# You can specify a custom docker image from Docker Hub as your build environment.
image: php:7.1.1

pipelines: default:
apt-get update && apt-get install -y unzip
curl -sS | php -- --install-dir=/usr/local/bin --filename=composer
composer install

When I run the first (and subsequent builds) I get the following failure message:

GIT_LFS_SKIP_SMUDGE=1 git clone --branch="master" --depth 50 https://x-token-auth:$ $BUILD_DIR ; git reset --hard 610705fc575fc880e38fea219767126cc01106e7 ; git remote set-url origin
Cloning into '/opt/atlassian/pipelines/agent/build'...
remote: Invalid username or password
fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://x-token-auth:$'

I've tried making the repository public and removing 2-Factor Authentication from my account and I still got the same error. So I made the repo private again and re-enabled 2FA on my account.

I've also added an SSH key-pair to the pipeline to see if that would fix it but it still didn't work. I feel like I'm really close to getting this to work but I'm just missing a small step.

I don't think it needs an app password because there is no location to enter a username and password when starting the pipeline.

I've thought that maybe I need to create a new environment variable named `REPOSITORY_OAUTH_ACCESS_TOKEN` and set it to a new OAuth token key or secret. Not sure what to do.
