Receiving an Authentication Failed for while cloning in GitHub Desktop on a Mac



I'm receiving an Authentication Failed for while cloning in GitHub Desktop on a Mac.

I created an app password in Bitbucket.

I'm using my Github account to login to the GitHub desktop and want to downloaded a bitbucket repo.

I'm not clear on what the processed is to make this work.

Hi Joe!

Whilst I am not very skilled in providing support for GitHub, I have managed to find documentation from Github which may help. It describes  how to import repositories from Bitbucket Cloud into Github using the Github Importer Tool:

I have exact same problem I need to import few repos in Github but the tool stopped working. it authenticates spins for a while and gives me credentials screen again so something is broken for sure.

Hey Rati, 

This issue might be due to our deprecation of GIT username/password in favour of App Password which took effect progressively from 01/03 onwards to customers:
