Git needs to talk over SSH. You need something to help you with that.

Thanks a Tonne. This works a charm. Let me say this... atlassian-sourcetree-bitbucket... we've faced innumerable authentication problems without a simple guide or a straightforward process.

Yep 🤷‍♂️

So, you install Sourcetree as a sister app for Atlassian services and anfter losing 2 hours you realize their app can not authenticate itself with the service they own.
