usename vs email

I have successfully created the Bitbucket account (email /password); however, I am trying to create an account via SourceTree.  I just changed preferred protocol to SSH and Authentication to Basic.

Enter username  myuser(as defined in Bitbucket settings) and enter the same password as the one used for e-mail.

Error: unable to find the password for the “myuser” at bitbucket

Why is it that I can log  using myemail@gmail /mypassword

But fails using myuser/mypassword?

I tried to change username but does not prompt for new password.

Any help is greatly appreciated

I changed the users’s  password and I also upgraded to latest ST 3.3.8.  It is working now unfortunately, not sure which fixed it.

Thank you
