I have set up a few Custom Actions in SourceTree, and they have all worked fine for me. For instance, I have some custom cherry-pick commands that I use from time to time:
However, I just created a new Custom Action that operates on the repository in general (not on a specific commit) and I just can't get it to work. Here is its description:
Each time I attempt to execute this Custom Action, I get this error:
git push --force
could not read Password for 'https://email@example.com': Device not configured
Completed with errors, see above
Does anyone have any idea why there is this authentication error when I try to simply to do a "git push --force" via a Custom Action?
Yup, that's working fine, but only if I use /usr/bin/git (which is the default). If I try to use /Applications/SourceTree.app/Contents/Resources/git_local/bin/git to do a push --force, it fails with a slightly different error:
fatal: Unable to find remote helper for 'https'
But it seems to fail with the former error in SourceTree, regardless of which git binary I choose for the Custom Action.
It's worth trying SSH (although requires a bit of setting up). We've got a guide here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BITBUCKET/Using+the+SSH+protocol+with+Bitbucket
I'll still look into this HTTPS issue in the meantime, but I suspect using SSH in your case will resolve the issue.
