Hello! Have you added your username and password to Sourcetree? Do you get a prompt for a username+password?


I'd also recommend using the latest version as we recently added support for TFS accounts. You can add TFS accounts via Tools > Options > Authentication.

Hi Mike, 

I did add account to Sourcetree and I have access to this link. 

There is two accounts shows in Authentication. 

The first one shows "Host :" " Authentication: OAuth"

The second one shows "Host: Github -tfs-ops.resource.corp:8080/tfs ... etc." "Authentication: Basic"

I don't know what cause this error. Would you like to help me figure it ?

Hi Mike, 


Do you know how can I skip the account setting up process when I re-install the sourcetree.
