Hi @Niringiyimana Elie 

Thank you for contacting Atlassian Community, my name is Norbert and I'm a Bitbucket Cloud Support Engineer, it's nice to meet with you!

I would like to inform you that you can set up your Linux instance to save the credentials.

You can do it the following way:

git config --global credential.helper store

$ git clone
Username: <type your username>
Password: <type your password>

[after setting up the credentials]
$ git push
[your credentials are used automatically]

Please let us know how it goes, I'm here to help.

Best Regards,
Atlassian Bitbucket Cloud Support

You tagged your issue as Bitbucket Cloud and asking for password on linux server. 

Can you confirm you really target Bitbucket Cloud ?

What kind of password do you want to generate ?  

Is this API related ?

I want to pull changes from Bitbucket using App password and it still shows error because Bitbucket switched to App password recently. For me I created App password but I want to set it into my Linux server to be able to pull.
