I am using Sourctree v3.0.17 on Windows 10.
I have two repositories:
2) tfs git
I had everything working fine until the tfs server forced a password change. At that point Sourcetree gave an authentication error when I tried to push. I cannot find where to change the password for the generic host account in Sourcetree. I followed an earlier thread indicating that the generic host account credentials can be changed in the Windows Control Panel. I searched high and low in the Windows Credential Manager and the Web Credential Manager, and I cannot find the generic host account listed or any account for this repo listed.
How do I change the generic host account password? Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
Although Sourcetree shares them, ultimately the credentials used for pull/push etc in Git are managed by the Git Credential Manager for Windows, GCM, an add-on bundled with Git for Windows releases.
For example the Microsoft themed dialog that opens to prompt you for TFS credentials is part of the GCM not Sourcetree.
The GCM does store its credentials in the Credential Manager under the Windows side. They are all prefixed with 'git:'
This assumes there is nothing more complicated happening in your environment, I.e. you do not have domain level credentials being shared between you workstation and the Bitbucket instance.
Ultimately if you delete all the 'git:' prefixed entries from the Windows Credential Manager then there are no credentials the GCM can try and use, in those circumstances it should re-prompt you for new credentials.
