Sorry to hear you're having trouble connecting to your cloud repository due to your company's proxy server.One solution you could try is using a proxy tool like ShiftProxy ( This tool can help you connect to the internet through a different proxy server, bypassing the restrictions that your company's proxy server has in place. It's worth checking out their pricing plans.Another solution is to check with your IT department to see if they can make an exception for you to connect to your cloud repository. If that's not possible, you could also try using a VPN to connect to the internet.

Hey there, welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Using a forward proxy with Sourcetree can be done. How you go about it depends on if you're on Windows or MacOS. Do note that you'll need to use HTTPS when connecting to Bitbucket rather than SSH in order for the proxy settings to apply properly.

It's fairly friendly to set up a proxy in Sourcetree for Windows. From the Tools menu in Sourcetree, click Options (bottom choice in the Tools menu). Once the options menu is up, flip to the Network tab and you can choose between the proxy configured in Windows, or manually configure it directly in Sourcetree.



On the MacOS side, it's still possible but slightly more difficult. You'll need to manually configure the proxy via text settings, which is described in depth over at this post. Here's the steps briefly:

  1. Open ~/.gitconfig for editing on your local computer with the text editor of your choice
  2. Add a line for your proxy settings, substituting the url/username/password/port:
    proxy =
  3. Save the file and re-open Sourcetree
