G'day, @arun kumar 

May I know how you clone the repository because the error seems like it's showing you are not using the right authentication method?

Essentially when cloning a repository you can open the repository and click the Clone button on the top right corner. Then select which connection you wish to use to clone for example HTTPS:

git clone https://<username>@bitbucket.org/<WorkspaceName>/<RepoName>.git

You'll be asked to provide a password as authentication in the next steps. You need to generate an App Password as your authentication credentials, please check our page below on how to generate an App Password:


Let me know if you have any additional questions.
