I installed the bitbucket extension for VS 2017/2019 (tried in both versions that I have on my two machines). I have a free plan account with bitbucket and I could not login either using my email and pwd or username/pwd combination. It gives me the unauthorized error always.
I use two factor authentication and without warning it does not work with auto login in Visual Studio 2017 anymore.
I looked at Visual Studio Marketplace and found an answer which worked for me.
I created an App Password in bitbucket and used the User-name which is generated for the url of git. Instead of the FQDN or email. Only the username is used for login.
Example: git URL :https://firstname.lastname@example.org/...
The user name is: j_mayers
(without @ and DN)
Hope this helps others.
Hi @aravindk777 , welcome to the Community!
I unerstand you're having difficulties to connect to Bitbucket using the Visual Studio extension. For troubleshooting purposes, could you try to log in to Bitbucket directly using your browser and the same credentials you're trying with the Visual Studio app and let us know if it works?
If Bitbucket works but you're still unable to log in through the extension, please contact the developer of the plugin so they can continue helping you, you can find their page at Visual Studio Marketplace.
Hope that helps,
