Could not clone a Bitbucket repo to SourceTree 3.0.8

I have cloned lots of repos before, so I should know what I'm doing, but I could not clone a repo using SourceTree 3.0.8 using System Git (


From the `Clone` button of Bitbucket, I copied the URL below


and pasted it to Clone tab of SourceTree, but it said

> This is not a valid source path / URL






However, from command line, `` just worked fine.

I suspect that this can be a new bug. So I report this here.

Hi Kouichi!

Can you expand the error message and see what it says? I've tried reproducing this issue and in my case I was getting the error:

fatal: I don't handle protocol 'git clone https'

Then I removed the 'git clone' part from the URL I cloned from Bitbucket and it worked. Can you double check this is not happening to you as well?

Let us know!


No I'm not pasting "git clone " command to the box for an URL.

I tried it for another repo and got this error.


Command: git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks ls-remote
Error: fatal: ArgumentException encountered.
   An item with the same key has already been added.
remote: Too many invalid password attempts. Log in at to restore access.
fatal: unable to access '': The requested URL returned error: 403


It's been a month, but I still cannot clone via SourceTree GUI.

It ways "Invalid username or password".

But I'm using the registered Bitbucket account.

Opening my Bitbucket account by Options > Authentication > Accounts > Edit, Edit Hosting Account window shows "Authentication OK".

Is there anything else I can do to fix this problem?


Pasting the command shown in the Clone this repository dialong of Bitbucket into MINGW64 terminal works. So it is a valid source path and authentication should be OK.
