Can't login to Sourcetree on Mac with Tower installed

I've been using Tower for Git for years, but wanted to try Sourcetree. When it first launches, it asks me to select Bitbucket Cloud or Bitbucket Server. I think we're using Cloud, so I select that and it takes me to and I login. It then presents a screen that asks if I want to authorize the app and lists all the permissions I'm agreeing to. All that works fine.

But at the bottom is a button that says Grant Access. When I click on it, I get a query that says, "Do you want to allow this page to open “Tower”?" with a Cancel or Allow. If I hit Allow, then Tower opens. It never comes back to Sourcetree to authorize that app and I'm stuck.

When I look at my Bitbucket settings under OAuth, both Tower and Sourcetree are now listed. But I still can't get past that initial setup screen in Sourcetree.

I've tried removing OAuth for both Tower and Sourcetree and trying again, but that didn't help.

Hi David,

Tower is hijacking the sourcetree:// URI and that breaks our OAuth support amongst other things. You'll want to ask them where you can disable that so Sourcetree can work properly.

Thanks! I heard back from the Tower people and got it fixed. Here's what they said:

Hi David,

Thank you for your message.

You can configure this from within Tower, go to Preferences -> Integration (see attached screenshot).

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need help with anything else.

Kind regards,

I tried it and got it to work.
