Hi Jennifer! How are you trying to update your credentials?


Sourcetree stores its credentials in Windows Credential Manager, or Vault. You can clear out all credentials by deleting any prefixed by:

'git:' for git repos

'hg:' for mercurial repos

'Sourcetree:' for REST apis

They're all also stored in are stored in %localappdata%/Atlassian/SourceTree/accounts.json. 

Let us know if you have any questions!


Thank you for your response. I did find this data in the same area however a different file was needed to make the change. The "passwd" file needed to be cleared as it becomes cached with the data. Thanks for your help!
