Clone in Sourcetree from tutorial leads to invalid username or password

Marcus Crowley July 20, 2020

I am following your Sourcetree tutorial at


I am on Windows 10. I am at and click on "Clone", then on "Clone in Sourcetree". Between steps 4 and 5, I get a spinner and then "This is not a valid source path" below the first field in the Clone dialog. When I click "Details" here is the full error message:

Command: git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks ls-remote
Error: remote: Invalid username or password
fatal: Authentication failed for ''

Considering this is a tutorial it strikes me that the tutorial instructions may have a missed a step? I'd like some guidance on how to progress from here.
