Cannot get "git clone .. " to work

This is my first attempt to use git and my first attempt to use bitbucket. My collaborator invited me to clone his repository and told me to use the command: 

git clone https://your-username@bitbucket.org/path_to_repository


But what username is expected? I have an Atlassian username, a github username, a username assigned by the command 

git config --global user.name "MyName"

or maybe some completely different username.

git then asks me for my password. Same question: which password? I have hundreds of them.

Maybe I should be asking a meta-question. How do I get started?

It should be your Atlassian username and password.
