Change remote host in Sourcetree without having to download the repository again

My company recently migrated our bitbucket url, and I was wondering if I change the host under Options>Authentication>Accounts, will this require me to download all the repositories again? If yes is there a way to do it without having to download all the repositories.

Hello! This shouldn't require you to re-download all your repos, but you'll need to change the repo URL.

  1. Open the repo and select "Settings"
  2. Select the path
  3. Hit "Edit" and replace the URL with the new URL. I highly suggest confirming with a coworker what the new URL needs to be.
