Cannot login in sourcetree with a corporative gmail account

Hi, I'm trying to clone a repo assigned to a corporative account. The problem is that once i try to clone the repo through sourcetree, a login popup comes up multiple times and since the way the atlassian account was created did not require a password since the account is managed by the company i work for, i find my self stuck there, for i have no password for that gmail account, and i mean the account automatically generates a password everytime authentication is done.

Hi @antrax97,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

Are you working on Windows or MacOS? If you are on Windows, does the pop-up window say Git Credential Manager for Windows? If so, then you disable it by running these commands:

git config --system --unset credential.helper
git config --global --add core.askpass ""

The first one will disable the Git Credential Manager for Windows, and the second one will turn it off for OpenSSH.
