I am using SourceTree for Windows version:184.108.40.206
I have a few repositories cloned using a public key, but keep getting prompted with an "Authenticate" dialog asking for username and password. Hitting cancel and ignoring it seems to work fine, but it is starting to be annoying to get this pop up.
I am assuming it is related to git submodules, since I was not able to clone a git repository which had a submodule in it using teh GUI. I had to drop to teh terminal and use command line to clone that repository and then import it in teh GUI. So I am guessing somehow the authentication for teh submodule is not using teh ssh keys provided. Any help with this would be appreciated.
So long as the submodules can be authenticated with your public key this should work fine - it certainly does for me. The problem may arise when your submodule has a source URL which identifies a different user name or a host for which you don't have a valid default key.
It's a pain. I type in the password and "Remember Password" is ticked but it keeps coming up. I've used SourceTree on another computer and it doesn't do this. It's only started doing this on my laptop recenty, and seems to popup once for every repository tab I have open.
At the very least, we should be able to disable automatic polling checks.
