Mac OS X 10.12.6 / SourceTree 2.7.6
I have a repo at github. I've created a clone on my laptop. On GitHub I created a Personal Access Token and assigned all the scopes.
In SourceTree I open Preferences, click Accounts, click the GitHub account, click Edit and past the PAT into the password field. It appears to accept that.
I then click Push ... and I get this:
git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree push -v --tags origin refs/heads/master:refs/heads/master
Pushing to https://github.com/ericscheid/homebrewery
remote: Invalid username or password.
fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://github.com/ericscheid/homebrewery/'
Completed with errors, see above.
Where am I going wrong?
Just in case any of you are still looking for an answer, I finally ended up doing the following:
1- Go to "C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree"
2- Delete the file passwd
3- Open Sourcetree and make some action in the repository (push, fetch, pull)
4- Sourcetree is going to request the password and we are going to enter the PAT
Apparently Sourcetree keeps an old version of the password in that file and doesn't replace it when we change it in the Tools -> Options -> Authentication.
