Hi Dennis, cloning with OAuth looks like:

$ git clone https://x-token-auth:{access_token}

The string x-token-auth is required as a substitute for the username.

OAuth needs a key and secret, which together are know as an OAuth consumer. To create a consumer, do the following:

  1. In your Bitbucket account, navigate to your avatar in the bottom left and click Bitbucket settings.
  2. In the left navigation panel, click OAuth > Add consumer.  
    The system will ask you for name, description, callback URL and URL.

  3. Click Save. The system generates a key and a secret for you.
  4. Toggle the consumer name to see the generated Key and Secret value for your consumer.

Let us know if you have any more questions or if you're stuck somewhere.

Best regards,
