Git lfs credentials


I can't pull lfs files from my Bitbucket server. I configured the repository on the server to support lfs. then I initialized my local repository to use lfs, and track mp4s using SourceTree. I pushed the gitattributes and a large file.

When I try to clone the repository i can't pull the lfs files (I have to enter my password twice) then it fails with "credentials not found":

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree -c lfs.customtransfer.bitbucket-media-api.path=git-lfs-bitbucket-media-api lfs pull 

LFS: Git credentials for http://matthiasS@ not found.
Git LFS: (0 of 1 files) 0 B / 25.20 MB                                         

Completed successfully

Does lfs require different credentials?

Pulling from the shell works though...

Pulling from the shell and restarting sourcetree solved it.
