I've recently used sourcetree for the first time in over a year. I'm getting a message from github that I need to use a personal access token. I've got to github and created the token.
But... I cannot figure out how to update sourcetree to use the token. What steps do I take (I'm on windows if that matters)?
I just found the answerr in case you haven't. Im also using windows.
I installed GitHub Desktop and it was working out of the box.
Not clear how a company like Atlassian keeps SourceTree so hard to operate for a basic feature.
Why should I search forums on how to solve a basic issue like connecting to GitHub using a token? Atlassian should update SourceTree to have a clear way to integrate with GitHub using an access token.
I had a similar issue on my Mac (Big Sur):
Configure SourceTree to use "System Git". Just select "Use System Git" to select the Git version which is installed on your system.
Thus, the issue seems to have gone away in SourceTree, since my System Git is properly reading from my Mac's Keychain Access, and SourceTree is no longer using the Embedded Git.
There are many different issues you might face.
We have tried to dig into each of them and resolve them all finally.
