How to push with http token?

Nils Bentlage March 28, 2023

There's one of our Repositorys we want to make accessbile in our organization, even for co-workers without a Bitbucket-Account and/or SSH-Key. So we thought about a http-token.

I am able to clone that repo using the created http-token, but i'm unable to write (git push). I tried to achieve that by adding <user>:<token>@ .... to the remote (actually, i cloned it that way, so i just changed that afterwards for Testing)

  • The Token-Authorization-Level is set to "write repository"
  • as a Username i tried my own and also 'x-auth-token'

We're running BB 8.8 on-prem.

thx in advance.

Hi Nils,

If the clone works, the push should work the same way - what happens when you do try to push with a token?

Hi Christian, thanks for your fast reply :)

from git push i get:

fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://<our-bitbucket-url>/scm/~<my-user>/<my-project>.git/'

I just tried it one more time and am able to pull & fetch, using the origin i wrote. To do that i used the http-clone-address (as suggested by the top left icon in BB) and added '<user>:<token>@' between https:// and the domain. But im unsure because of the character '~' ... it is part of the url but should not be a part of the username. is that correct?
