Not sure if I should ask here or on github forums.
I'm trying to log into my bitbucket account via Github desktop to access a repo I am working on. But it doesn't accept my password. I use the same login I use for the bitbucket website and it doesn't work.
It used to work. But suddenly it lost my login and wants me to authenticate again.
Hi @Kyan Rowse and welcome to the community!
We have deprecated account passwords when using Basic authentication for Git over HTTPS and the Bitbucket Cloud REST API.
You will need to generate an app password and use that instead of a password:
If you only need to clone/pull/push to repos, then an app password with permissions Repositories - Read and Repositories - Write should be enough. If the app is doing additional things, then additional permissions may be required (e.g. if there is an option to add your account, then Account - Read permissions may be required as well).
