HG authentication with remote


After updating Sourcetree on my Mac I am no longer able to authenticate with an HG remote.


I tried removing the saved username for the remote, as well as deleting the saved password from Keychain Access but still no luck.



Any help or advice would be much appreciated.


Thank you!

Can you please specify if this is a custom host or Bitbucket cloud?
If the account is added in Sourcetree or not?
If added, protocol used and also the error that you see when trying to perform any action.

This is with a custom host, error simply says "abort: authentication failed".

The account is not added to SourceTree, as in it does not show up under the Accounts tab.
