Issue pushing from SourceTree


I am using SourceTree for the first time and am having trouble pushing my local repository. I was able to create a local repository and a duplicate online. I added files to my local repository and now want to push them to the remote.

I can login to bitbucket on the web without issue and do see my new repository. Also in SourceTree I can see my local repository and new files. 

When I try to push I get this error:

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks push -v --tags --set-upstream eval_nucleo_g431_r202 master:master
remote: Invalid username or password
fatal: Authentication failed for ''
Pushing to
Completed with errors, see above.


If I open the terminal on SourceTree for either repository and issue git ls-remote I get an authentication error. However, if I open git from the Windows command line and issue git ls-remote the authentication is valid. It appears to be something set wrong in my SourceTree environment. Also, in the Windows launched git I was able to perform the push commands. 

Any idea what I need to change in SourceTree?

Hi @Brian Tremaine and welcome to the community!

I believe that the most likely reason for this error is that SourceTree has stored incorrect credentials for, which are used when you are doing an operation like clone/pull/push.

My suggestion would be to clear any stored credentials for from SourceTree, and then give it another try. You can find instructions in the following doc on how to clear stored credentials (the instructions for SourceTree are at the end of the page):

Kind regards,
