Http access token

Paul Kumar May 18, 2023


We have Bitbucket data center v7.21.7 and I have created a HTTP access token with read / write access. It works fine but periodically it asks for the credentials while trying to clone or push. I am trying to understand under which circumstances this happens and if there is a way to avoid asking for credentials from time to time.

Could someone please help in this regard?

Hi @Paul Kumar

I would recommend going with SSH. It's a hassle one time and push/pull as required. Do look at the guide on setting up the SSH key for Bitbucket Server -

Hi @Baskar Annamalai 

Thank you for the suggestion. Actually I felt HTTP access token was more convenient for me as I usually access the Bitbucket repositories from multiple workstations without having to worry about creating the ssh key on indidividual workstation and adding them on Bitbucket. But if HTTP access token doesn't work as expected, I will consider switching back to SSH.
