I have had this problem for ages, years. It's totally doing my head in.
I have done clean installs, tried to gouge out any remnants of SourceTree profiles (as far as I can tell), but it just keeps happening.
I continuously get a popup (see inserted photo) that prompts me for my Bitbucket credentials. I have entered them countless times and they are correct. I use them to login to the site just fine. I can push commits to my private Bitbucket repos with them. It doesn't matter what I do, this popup just keeps on trucking.
Any ideas before I put a shovel through my screen !!!!
Am on Windows 10 using SourceTree version 2.1.25. This has been happening on all version as far back as I can remember.
This prompt is actually from Git Credential Manager. To avoid it, set the following git configuration values:
helper = manager # this is required to use GCM
interactive = false
modalPrompt = false
Two of the ways you can set these values:
I also had problems with git (2.41.0.windows.1) insisting on asking for password for every remote operation. Disabling the fancy prompt based on the above just resulted in git-askpass.exe being used to prompt for password.
It turns out this can be solved by enabling the "Account Read" permission when creating the app password.
Hi Dean! Have you tried wiping your SourceTree preferences following these steps already? If after that, the issue still persist, please provide the following information:
Thanks for the reply Ana.
Pretty sure I wiped the prefs previously.
But I yesterday I did remove all projects except for my latest one from the Bookmarks. I haven't noticed the popup today.
So seems to be related to a particular project. Also I might not have always had Pageant running with keys. So it might be combo of your 2nd and 3rd points.
I'll gradually check to see what project might be causing issue.
I have the same issue, without having SourceTree installed.
From inspecting the popup process, it's being spawned by a `git` process, which is child of VS Code. I believe that happens because it's trying to check for any updates available on my remote (it's a https repo).
Even if I enter the correct credentials, it still reopens after a while.
