Github 2FA personal access token doesn't work

Hey i have 2FA enabled on my github account and i can't get it to work under windows Sourcetree 2.6.10.

I have followed this guide two-factor-authentication-2fa-with-github-in-sourcetree but to no avail.

I am getting Authentication failed: Failed to check login for user [my_username] user/emails was not found.

Authentication is set to Basic and protocol is HTTPS.

Hello! You won't be able to use basic auth with 2FA -- you'll need to use the OAuth option. Could you try that and let me know if it works?

Hi, thanks for the reply. OAuth works.

Which information goes into which fields in SourceTree to make SourceTree v4.0.2 (236) work with Github 2FA?
