When creating a repository using the bitbucket API I am suddenly getting the following error, despite everything working previously:
Error: API Error: 403...Too many invalid password attempts. Log in at https://id.atlassian.com/ to restore access.
I have tried all the usual, and the suggested elsewhere, methods of overcoming this issue:
Is it possible the API error is actually incorrect? One possible explanation is that I may have hit the API too many times in a set period using the app password?
Does anyone have any suggestions?
To answer my own question here (yes, I am build_services):
Turns out that I had the app password in two places, and never updated it in one of them 🤦. But the API error is incorrect as logging in at https://id.atlassian.com/ does nothing to help the situation in this case; and the error is brought about not by a frequency of invalid log-in attempts in this cause, but only 1.
The API error should perhaps simply read: 'Incorrect password attempt'.
Sorry both, you're right, I should have added more detail at the time bc now I'm not 100% sure what those 2 places are. IIRC I had updated my password in `postman` but not in my kubernetes job that was doing the work that postman was simulating, so probably not the answer you are looking for anyway
