[Solved] I have to type the password 10 times a day (macosx) Edited

Hello

I choose SourceTree as best client for Git. Thanks a lot for providing such a great tool for free.

I don't understand why, SourceTree asks again and again the password to the Git Server (this is a private GitLab server), even if I check "Remember the password in keychain".

Do you have the same issue ?

Is there any workaround ?

Thanks

There seem to be some similar issues recently, which version do you use?

Hi Riccardo, first of all thank you for using SourceTree :)

That's a know bug already and our developers are working on fixing it. If you'd like, you can try 2.5.1, now in public alpha. It has additional improvements for authentication and see if that fixes your issue. You can download it here.

Hope this helps!

Thanks Patrick. I'm using version 2.5

Thanks Ana. I tried the sourcetree alpha 2.5.1 (106) for macosx

I did several times a Fetch and I had to type password again and again.

By the way, is there any reason why, in software preferences, I cannot create an account for my own gitlab server, only on github or bitbucket ? With a config on my own server, I could at lease set my ssh key !

Thanks

I use the same SourceTree on 2 GitLab servers and one of them have no problem with passwords.

giltlab memorizing password : v9.1.0 (using https)
gitlab asking frequent password : v9.1.2  (using https)

both have Git 2.11.1, both client config are identical

hope this helps solving the issue.

Sorry, after some tests, the v9.1.0 is also asking password as soon I we changed from http to https.

The problem is then when going https.

SOLVED!

I added in ~/.gitconfig :

[credential "https://myserver"]
username = mylogin
helper = store

And it solved the problem.

Thanks for that it, it seems to have solved that issue for me too (OSX Sierra, gitlab 9.0.0) !

Hi Riccardo! I'm glad to hear that you were able to solve the problem and that you shared it here with the Community :)

Have a great day,

Ana
