It seems to be impossible to add an existing GitLab account to SourceTree. When requested for authentication, though using correct username and fresh password, it continuously fails.
Any suggestions that doesn't involve using a different repo provider?
Thanks for the suggestion. I should have elaborated the steps that lead to the issue.
In first instance, an attempt to text copy the personal token from Gitlab to Sourcetree proved impossible to accomplished. The text box for the personal token was present but completely inactive, making impossible to write and/or copy text.
The next step was to click on the Refresh Personal Token. This popped up a login window, which lead to the authentication issue.
Any options to introduce the Personal Token?
1. Go to this link https://gitlab.com/profile/personal_access_tokens and create a personal access token
2. From source tree, Tools/Option. Click Authentication tab, add account, choose gitlab and enter username as name of personal access token, password is Personal Access Token.
not working at all. i even removed all auhentication fields, yet when i try to push my code to gitlab repo i get basic auth failed, you need access token.
i did setup access token, my access token has FULL access.
in old 1.9 source tree same token works flawless, but in new fugly 3.x nothing works. removing all account restarting git, doesn't work. adding manually account to setting (which creates 2 entries, one for basic auth, and one account) doesn't work. yes PAT refresh token says SUCCESS but PUSH to repository always fails.
guys can you finally fix this?
it's huge pain, and whenever i forget to decline upgrade to 3.x shit. i need to revert back to 1.9 to get working git client.
ok small update (i found this, when i was solving another problem - after update terminal didn't work - switching to "system" git instead of embeded git solved not only terminal problem, but also "authentication" issue)
so authentication doesn't work with embeded git, but does work with system git.
I have system git version selected...
I use GitLabEE, and when I refresh Personal Access Token and I put my GitLab username y the PAT generated token from GitLab, it does not work.
So, it is impossible to connect. Please, could anyone recommend me another tool, NOT Sourcetree? Thanks!!
Hi, I would like to recommend to all guys this link and it works for me
As I know, this resolved my issue when I put my PAT as password and username for login. But it seems to not working because it is missing api scope.
It’s probably late, but hopefully it helps you.
Just wanted to update this thread to let you know there is now a native automation trigger for GitLab with Jira Cloud. We are running a webinar soon to walk through how it works and show some use cases in how to automate from Gitlab to Jira.
