I have needed to reset my id.atlassian.com password at least once a day for the past week or so to fix the below message I get whenever I try to push/pull to BitBucket using SourceTree for Mac. After I reset my password and login to id.atlassian.com then SourceTree will work for a few hours before I see the same message again.
I revoked all other OAuth access to my Bitbucket account with the excption of my current machine. I also checked Bitbucket sessions and did not see anything out of the ordinary. Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be causing this? It makes development very frustrating.
remote: Too many invalid password attempts. Try logging in through the website with your password.
SourceTree Version 2.5.3
Bitbucket User https://bitbucket.org/rjdavis3
So we actually filed a support case and it was resolved for us with the following response from Atlassian:
"Please try to clear Bitbucket Credentials from your machine (Windows : Credential Manager / Mac : Keychain Access)
Next please navigate to bitbucket password reset to reset your password. Once you have reset your password, please try to login to Bitbucket on the Web UI.
Once login is successful, please try a git operation from your git terminal."
For me personally, the password reset and the keychain removal resolved the issue 100%. I haven't seen it popup again (so far ~ 3 days).
I suddenly had the same problem after changing my Atlassian pw.
I did the above for my PC and now, instead of too many bad login attempts, it tells me my pw is wrong in Sourcetree (ST).
Not sure where to go from here. Tried to update pw in ST settings but to no avail. Unstalled and reinstalled Sourcetree. Typed in new pw in Edit Accounts. Re-authorized there too. '
I too am going to have to switch to another UI or just use command line. Which I dislike as I really really like SourceTree when it works correctly and it has worked well for me in the past for YEARS. I cannot have this issue like this all day as it is very annoying to have to open a browser and navigate to that URL in hopes that it'll let me push my code. If i could add my account via basic https, this resolved my issue at my last company but since this is no longer the case (have to OAuth via google) this application is nearly useless for me.
It happend to me twice today so far too. My latest work around has been going here and changing my password. Even setting it to the same password seems to reset this silly 403 error. At least that saves me from the forgot password email flow.
Still highly annoying though. I even tried wiping my SourceTree settings and starting over using this link.
I had to follow the steps RJ Davis posted under his "here" link, except I just deleted EVERYTHING in my AppData/Local/Atlassian folder. I reopned SoureTree, and readded my work repo. It failed to log in. I went to my bitbucket settings, and followed the link to my Atlassian account settings. I reset my password there. Then in SourceTree I used my work email address(not my user name) and the new password I created in the Atlassian account(not my google login password) and I was able to login. Yet, I CANNOT login to Bitbucket in the same way. It forces me to login there with my google email address(work) and it's password. Atlassian, I love you. Truly. And I understand you are trying to bring all of your login stuff into one great way of loggin in. And I understand it is not a trivial problem. But you are not doing a good job here. You can do better.
I think I might have fixed this on my machine.
I completely uninstalled SourceTree (removing everything in ~/Library/Application Support/SourceTree/ and running defaults delete com.torusknot.SourceTreeNotMAS in Terminal). I removed any KeyChain entries for Bitbucket. I then downloaded and installed Version 2.6. I also removed any local repos I had. Finally I enabled two-factor authentication on my Bitbucket account and added my Bitbucket account to SourceTree. So far I have not gotten the "Too many invalid password attempts" message again.
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
