Can't use App Password with SourceTree Mac OS

ipm_chinh I'm New Here Mar 28, 2022


I'm trying to switch SourceTree to using App Password. I followed the instructions from the included support link below and all I get is:

"Login error: We couldn't connect to Bitbucket with your (xxxx) credentials. Check your username and try the password again."

I've removed SourceTree and all of its setting files with no success.

I can oAuth sucessfully, but sourcetree doesn't allow remote browsing after a successful oAuth. After I connect using oAuth, if I try to re-add using Basic auth, I get:

"Cannot save account settings for xxxxx. You already have a similiar account configured for Bitbucket. You can edit that account to change settings."

I'm currently using:

MacOS 10.15.7
SourceTree 4.1.6 (242)

Is there a new version of sourcetree or is there something I'm missing?

Thank you,
