SourceTree "Create a remote repository" hangs on Owner


I have SourceTree installed on a Mac. I have some code committed to a local repository. This appears in the local tab on the SourceTree Bookmarks window. I also have a dummy repo in Bitbucket that appears on the remote tab, which tell me SourceTree has my account information OK.

So Now I right-click the local repo and select Publish to Remote...

I get a Create remote repository dialog, which has my Bitbucket account, and lets me fill in a Descriptions, but there's an empty "Owner Field" that has a spinner next to it that just sits there. The "Create" button is disabled so there is nothing I can do but cancel. How do I get my local repo published to Bitbucket?

Not sure if I should call this "Fix" or "Workaround" but I got past it on my own.

From the Bookmarks window, click the gear, then Settings...

Highlight the Bitbucket account.

Click Edit Account

Change Protocol from HTTPS to SSH

I found that I had to enter my password into the Bitbucket Cloud config dialog to get this working. Even though I was prompted for a password, the spinner would never complete.

  1. From the File "New/Clone" window, click the cog next to the "Filter repositories" input field
  2. Click Settings
  3. Click your Bitbucket Cloud account
  4. Click Edit
  5. Enter your password and hit OK (I left Protocol as HTTPS)

Try creating a repo again.
