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:
You will need to make use of an AppPassword for communicating to GIT via HTTPS.
We have documentation for usage of app passwords at the following link:
If you are using SourceTree as your GIT client an article with instructions can be found here:
