How can i change CredentialHelperSelector!

3lyza March 3, 2024

Hi! I'm new and it's the first time i used Sourcetree. When i logged in Sourcetree, it kept poping the CredentialHelperSelector window. Not knowing what it was, i choosed <no helper> and selected the Always use from now on box. But now that ive set up my git account, i know that i should've used the manager option. The issue is, i can't seem to find a way to make the CredentialHelperSelector window appear! I really need to change this setting or else i won't be able to do anything in Sourcetree! Fyi i don't use mercury or bitbuckett only sourcetree and git.

Have you seen this page : How to change options in credential helper. ( ?

Didn't it work for you?

Yeah, I've seen it. I tried and it didn't work.

I have the feeling that even when I delete my preferences, it is still retained in memory somewhere. Despite deleting all SourceTree folders, it remembers my username, email and preferences.
