Are you prompted to authenticate when Sourcetree is checking the source?

I am not prompted for authentication when SourceTree is checking the source. These are the steps followed by me when working with SourceTree:Step 1: Open BitBucket and go to my repository.

Step 2: From my repository, I click on the Clone button.

Step 3: In the Clone window, I click on "Clone in SourceTree"

Step 4: SourceTree opens with the window (screen shot sent)

Please let me know if I am doing anything wrong in the above procedure.

The steps you're using should work, but you should be prompted to authenticate to Bitbucket to clone the repository. If you were to remove the username from the URL ( and try to clone that, what happens?

Also, if you open up command prompt and try the git clone command, do you get any additional errors?

git clone

You may also need to add the bitbucket.orgRSA key fingerprint to your known hosts, you can do that with "ssh"

Please tell me how do I do this. I also tried by remiving the user name but nothing happens. No errors are shown by specifying the git coone command in the COmmand Prompt. It says unrecognised command.

Can't help but point out that it should be "git clone", not "git coone".

Assuming that was just a typo in the post, make sure you are running your git commands via SourceTree's "Terminal", not a raw Windows command prompt.

Seth is correct, for the git clone command, you'll want to use SourceTree's Terminal because it doesn't look like you have Git installed on your machine outside of SourceTree.

For the "ssh" command, you'll want to use the command prompt.
