How do I clone in SourceTree using HG/HTTPS from BitBucket?


When I click the 'Clone in SourceTree' button on bitbucket, it always tries to clone using SSH. I have stopped using SSH (for performance reasons).

When I click this button, SourceTree tries to clone in SSH, which fails, as I no longer have .ssh keys, or pageant running.

How can I make sourcetree default to HTTPS?

It works, it is just annoying when I have to do it many times a day, as I setup new machines for developers, etc.

Is this the wrong channel ask for help on SourceTree?

You can copy the HTTPS link into the Clone Repository dialog.

My co-workers who have never used SSH, are able to clone using HTTPS, by just clicking that button. Are you telling me that once you have used SSH with SourceTree you are never able to go back to HTTPS?

I'm not sure. I've only ever used SSH, and I don't need to clone very often (I work with a few repositories, but they're already all cloned). Is there a specific reason why copying the link doesn't work for you?
