Same issues.

Problem remains for me

Hi Naresh,


It seems to me the HTTP authentication is not working?

I found a solution for myself - Setup SSH and use that alternatively.


The instructions aren't great but here is a starter

Set up an SSH key | Bitbucket Cloud | Atlassian Support


1. Download and install putty to mange the authentication

2. use sourcetree to create a public key (cut and paste that into your bitbucket acct online)

3. From the same code (same window) generate your public key (this will be the local side of your authentication)

4. Set your sourcetree authentication to have SSH


see the instruction for more details but they may be more confusing


Hope this helps others!
