How do I use this for a new repository?

I've created a new local repository with some objects stored in git-lfs. When I try to push to my Bitbucket remote using ssh (the url is like, I'm prompted for an https username and password, and when I provide my Bitbucket credentials, they do not appear to be accepted (i.e. I see the dialog again.) What's going on?

Hi Steven,

I think the reason you are seeing the dialog again is that the git-lfs client sends multiple requests, and each one needs to be authorised. It sends one request to get the URLs to upload each file, and then one request per upload.

In order to avoid having to enter your credentials each time, git has the ability to cache your password, as described for example here:

If you activate this, you should not have to enter your password multiple times.

Please tell me if that does not solve your problem.



Thanks for the answer Philipp, but this doesn't appear to work on accounts with 2FA enabled. Please advise. I can open a new question if needed.
