Connect to Git from Eclipse?



I have a repository in Bitbucket I can easily access from the command line in a Linux environment, from SourceTree, from any browser (Firefox, Safari, ...) but I cannot clone any of my repository in Eclipse (via EGIT plugin, latest version available).

I have tried to use the password I use when accessing bitbucket, but nothing really works.


I got few different errors like:

- non authorised, but the password I use is the same.

Is there any additional step I need to perform in order to clone repositories in Eclipse? (I have the two-factors authentication enabled).

Hello @Luca Stoppa,

Welcome to the Community!

If you have two-step authentication enabled, you can't use your regular password for accessing your repositories. There're two options here: use SSH instead of HTTPS (you had to set up SSH in order to turn 2SV on) or an app password.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.



yes! Using ssh (and having Eclipse set to correctly pick up my priva keys in ~/.ssh fixed the issue).

Thanks a lot!
