oauth with composer is failing Edited

Hello, i am trying to install a website using composer, i have setup the auth.json file with the 

"bitbucket-oauth": {
"": {
"consumer-key": "MY_KEY",
"consumer-secret": "MY_SECRET"

and then i am running the composer install and it fails with the error

remote: Invalid username or password

if i use -vvv to get the debug details 

Failed to execute git clone --mirror 'https://***:***' '/data/customers/thinkpositive/.cache/composer/vcs/https---dimitris-toskas-bitbuck'

Cloning into bare repository '/data/customers/thinkpositive/.cache/composer/vcs/'...

Did you find a solution? I'm facing the same issue

I have found the solution for my case.

Make sure you are not connecting to the repo via http link but via SSH, and then make sure the port 22 is not blocked. If it was blocked there are solutions already posted online for that.

The reason why you'd go with SSH instead of HTTP is because composer and maybe also other tools do not let you input the username/password so the authentication fails. oauth alone did not seem like a proper solution to circumvent this in my case and I had to add my SSH credentials.
