Is it possible that your terminal is configured to use a keypair, but SourceTree isn't?

Hey rui,

Looks like your URL format might be wrong. Could you post a redacted version in its current format?

Thanks in advance

I had the same problem and basically just you need to delete the passwords in your keychain.

After that, try to add a repository and click in the icon in the right (world icon)

You will be asket to insert your password and login again...

That's it


I'm having the exact same issue.  I've tried every solution people have posted on the internet:

  • delete keychain pw
  • change the repo url to include the username (
  • Go to Repository > Repository Settings > Remotes — click the repo path and hit edit, add your username there so Keychain can find the appropriate pw.
  • In the repo list view, go to Accounts and set the pw there

NOTHING works.  Every time I fetch, push, pull, whatever, it still asks me for my damn password. Every. Single. Time.  The Store Password In Keychain checkbox does nothing, and I'm supplying my username all over the place, so keychain needing that bit of info ahead of time in order to work is also not the solution.  This problem never happened until I recently did an update.  According to the About info, I'm running version 2.4 (88) now.  So, whatever that upgrade did must've introduced this problem.  This is REALLY annoying. 

Did you ever resolve this? I'm having this issue now as well.
