Sourcetree and connecting to a server that needs a client certificate to connect

We are using an on-prem Bitbucket server. Before you can login using a standard authentication of a username and password, your browser must be authenticated using a personal certificate. I can't seem to find any documentation that shows if this even supported. Note that currently we are using Github Desktop to access our repo without a problem.  I'd prefer to use Sourcetree since that is what Bitbucket recommends. 

Here are snippets of log files I found. Note that I've redacted sensitive information with x's.

We don't explicitly support this at the moment in Sourcetree. Can I ask what is the behavior of git command line?

Git for Windows (command line) works fine. You just have to make sure to choose "Use the native Windows Secure Channel library" during installation.

@Frank Refol  Did you solve the issue with the SourceTree login?
