Bitbucket login keeps popping up in Visual Studio Code

Dear Team, 

I am facing multiple popups of login into bitbucket. I face almost 6-7 popups every time I use VS code and this is getting very annoying. Despite trying various methods. I have failed in getting rid of these popups.

Methods tried:

  1. Reset user setting in Visual Studio Code
  2. Uninstalled Bitbucket extensions and alias 
  3. Upgrade the Studio
  4. Login with my username and password. 


Studio: 1.17.1
node: 16.13.0
npm: 8.1.0
CLI: 13.0.3

Please provide a solution to this problem.

I was having the same issue and fixed it with changes in my .gitconfig file.  Quoting the solution I used below along with a link to the original thread.

Two of the ways you can set these values:

  • Edit your.gitconfigfile directly. On Windows it should be located at%userprofile%\.gitconfig
  • Use git at the command prompt:
    • `git config --global --replace-all credential.interactive false`
    • `git config --global --replace-all credential.modalPrompt false`
