Hi Eduardo! Are you using SourceTree for Windows or Mac? In the Windows version the login information for each server is kept in Tools > Options > Authentication

In Mac, it can be changed by clicking on Gear icon > Accounts. Alternatively, you can go to the "Keychain Access" utility on the Mac, search for the remote password and delete the stored key. Then the next time you start SourceTree, it will ask you for your new credentials.

Let us know if this worked for you!





all. Nopp. It is not working this way. The whole approach is absolutely error prown. Using Now I am even unable to assign an account to an internal github service. Do not know who designed this.


Let me know how to fix this. My dev process is blocked.

nevermind - it seems to be working now

For those of you still experiencing the issue, the solution that worked for me was:

1. delete all the saved passwords associated with the account

2. try pressing push-button again

3. hopefully you will get the prompt for new credentials.


Good luck!
