Can't clone Azure DevOps repo (Unless using PAT token)

Hi All,

Trying to "Clone from URL" on SourceTree, but run into an authentication issue when trying to pull it down from Azure DevOps. Without posting the whole error message - this is the final error I get:

fatal: Authentication failed for ''

This is using the latest version of SourceTree (4.2.0 (246)) and MacOS Ventura (13.0.1).

I can get it to work using a PAT embedded in the URL, but others seem to be able to clone the repo without creating a PAT to do so.


Installing Git Credential Manager via terminal fixes this issue, but ends up breaking authentication to a local TFS server in the process.

Happy with using the PAT method, but curious if others have run into the same issue or if there's a fix.
