SourceTree not showing watched remote repos

I'm setting up Bitbucket for our team for the first time.  I've created some repos and assigned team members.

When I go into SourceTree everything is great.  All the team repos are listed automatically in the remote repository list under New Tab > Remote.

However, when teammates do the same, no repos are listed.  I found old posts about needing to watch/follow other users repos to get them to show in the list (which makes sense).  So I had a teammate watch one of the repos in Bitbucket, but it still won't show in his remote list in SourceTree.

However, that teammate can manually enter the info and clone successfully in SourceTree, so it's not a rights issue.  They have rights and are watching it, so I'm not sure why it won't show in the remote list.

As another test, I had the teammate create a private repo and give me admin rights to it.  I can access the repo in Bitbucket and I started watching it, but it won't show in my remote list in SourceTree.  And of course, I can manually enter the info and clone successfully.

Am I missing something?  Anyone else have this problem?

Same problem here, reinstalled my computer from scratch yesterday, and I can't see any repo in the remote tab. I was able to see them prior to reinstall.

I was able to clone one repo by using the URL given in the web interface.

I'm using Bitbucket Server and I can't find a way to "watch" a repo like you would do on Bitbucket Cloud, is there anything like that?

My teamate's just updated his SourceTree app and is still able to see all repo listed.

Bitbucket Server (v5.2.2)

SourceTree 2.6 (123) via HTTPS on macOS Sierra (10.12.6)

I have the same problem with Github.

I can see watched repos on Remote repositories tab with Windows client (Windows 7, Sourcetree 2.1.10.0, git embedded git 2.13.2)

but I can't see them on Mac client. (macOS Sierra 10.12.6, Sourcetree 2.6.1(126), git embedded git 2.10.1)

Did anyone find a fix? Thx

not yet...

To workaround, you can login to your bitbucket web interface, open the project, click on "Clone" and then click on the "Clone in SourceTree".

But that's a lot of operations to mimic what was the remote tab...

SourceTree 2.7 fixed it!
