Github will soon change its login credentials:
"Basic authentication using a password to the API is deprecated and will soon no longer work. Visit https://developer.github.com/changes/2020-02-14-deprecating-password-auth/ for more information around suggested workarounds and removal dates."
I have tried to change to OAuth but it does not work. I always get this when i try a push:
"Pushing to https://github.com/CarCode/Cocoa-OCPN
remote: Permission to CarCode/Cocoa-OCPN.git denied to CarCode.
fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/CarCode/Cocoa-OCPN/': The requested URL returned error: 403"
Where do I find any information to connect Sourcetree to Github with the new authentication? Or is that not supported by Sourcetree? I use version 4.0.1 for macOS.
How did you get this to work? My new token works fine from command line git, but nothing I try will be accepted by sourcetree.
I'm using basic auth.
For user name i've tried my github username, the email address I use, others. But nothing works. With command line git I use my full email for username, and I use the token as the password. no problems.
What does sourcetree want as my username? The same thing command line git wants (my email)? something else?
do I need to give my token more scopes just so source tree can log in?
