I started using SourceTree mac version with BitBucket account a few months ago. Since the first day I constantly saw the following error message when doing any git related tasks:
git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree fetch upstream
remote: Too many invalid password attempts. Try logging in through the website with your password.
fatal: unable to access 'https://email@example.com/myrepo.git/': The requested URL returned error: 403
Completed with errors, see above
I've tried searching for solutions but had no luck. Some old threads mentioned it's a server side issue and was solved.
Current workaround is to go to Accounts and log in again everytime the error pops up.
Lately the error pops up more often than usual. Could you help me with this?
Hi Yuli, have you already tried login into Bitbucket using the web interface?
If after that you're still getting the error, navigate to id.atlassian.com in your browser with your email, and password - please make sure to NOT use the Google login form, and instead use the basic email/password fields. You may be asked to go through a captcha screen, or even reset your password if necessary.
Once you get logged in properly to id.atlassian.com, try your GIT operations again and please let us know if the issue is solved for you.
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Its more of a constant bandaid that you have to do all day in order to use SourceTree. Do you only have the option to login using a gmail account as well? I can confirm that when I could add my account over basic https, this never happened but that isn't the case anymore and that is not an option (only OAuth via google).
I'm having the same issue now. I can't access my repos at all through Sourcetree. I have:
And just keep getting denied with too many invalid passwords.
What is up? I AM logging through the company's third party service, and it says I need to ensure I have an account password in my profile... where is that? No idea... I know it worked last week.
I'm having this issue as well again. I had it at my previous company and now at this new company I am at. The common theme is they both use google for authentication. Every few git operations (sometimes EVERY operation) returns a 403 and I can navigate to id.atlassian.com (must be EXACTLY this URL) and it'll log me in and i MIGHT be ok for a few more git operations. I have my bitbucket account in sourcetree via OAuth and there is no way to log in without using my gmail account. I have no idea what is up and this is EXTREMELY frustrating and time consuming to have to constantly do this operation.
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
