I cannot push a repository to bitbucket, no problem before. missing credentials?


I use the Theia IDE with git to push repositories to bitbucket.

recently I have been trying to push a repository and it gives me this error

git push https://**********/*****.git master

Missing or invalid credentials.
Error: connect ENOENT /tmp/vscode-git-634e186cee.sock
at PipeConnectWrap.afterConnect [as oncomplete] (node:net:1187:16) {
errno: -2,
code: 'ENOENT',
syscall: 'connect',
address: '/tmp/vscode-git-634e186cee.sock'
remote: Invalid credentials
fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://**********/*****.git'

I have tried using different links, like https://**********/*****  and that did not work as well.

using git config --list I see that my username and email match with my atlassian account.

I have an app password and it doesn't even give me a popup for it like usual, just the error.\

thank you for any responses!

G'day Ethan!

Welcome to the Bitbucket Cloud community! :)

I have censored the workspace/repository URL and removed the screenshot as this is a public discussion forum.

The most common issue customers are experiencing related to authentication is due to the deprecation of GIT username/password in favour of App Passwords on 01/03/2022:

I notice that you already have an App Password configured, however, you will need to include it when defining your remote URL's.

Essentially, when connecting via HTTPS you will use your App Password alongside your username separated with a ":" character.

Therefore if you are authenticating to *GIT over HTTPS* to push/pull you will need to update your remote URLs to include the App Password:

git remote set-url origin

The same applies when performing git clone:

git clone

NOTE: You will need to replace USERNAME/APP_PASSWORD, workspaceID, reposlug above with the relevant values.

I would suggest ensuring also that all stored passwords related to authentication over GIT are cleared from your machine (ie Credential Manager for Windows, Access Keychain for Mac or /etc/shadow folder for Linux).

Hope this helps.
