Does anyone have any idea how to get Netbeans 14 connected to BitBucket following the recent authentication changes? 

I have the correct username and password and repo address but every time I click Next I get the following error: 

"Incorrect credentials for repository at https://bitbucket.org .... "

Any ideas anyone?

Hi @josh ,

Have you ever used app password instead of your account password?

Create new one and use it for your authen in Netbean.

Hope this helps!

Genius! Worked instantly.  Thank you so much.

Note that older repositories, created before the new auth system, seem to use the old auth system, and not require an app password (for now?). They use the account password. New repos created after the new auth was initiated, fail to authorize (at least from NetBeans 15) until a new app password is created in the bitbucket personal settings. Which should remind us all of the adage, "Great ideas are useless until communicated properly."

What about netbeans 18 and the latest 2023 "Repository Access Tokens"?  The access url changes to this according to the atlassian docs:

https://username:RepositoryAccessToken@bitbucket.org/path/repository.git

but bitbucket rejects this url.  So, we are locked out of all our repos.

Netbeans 14 does not currently support the new Bitbucket authentication changes. There is an open issue for this on the Netbeans bug tracker (https://netbeans.apache.org/bugtracking/show_bug.cgi?id=263901), but there is no estimated fix date. In the meantime, you can try using an older version of Netbeans or another IDE.
