Cannot pull the repository using http - authentication failed

After migration to google account authentication I cannot clone, pull or push to the Bitbucket git repositories using https protocol.

after git clone

git clone

I got error message:

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.


I can login to Bitbucket site via web browser, also ssh works.


I need to use https due to http proxy I'm behind.

Please advice.

Thank you for your answer.

I've and configured correctly. It used to work several weeks ago.

$ git config --local -l

Hi @Marcin Rosiek

If you are trying to clone your repository using git cmd / git bash then you have to configure your username and email.

git config --global "UserName".
git config --global "email address".
