I'm getting these messages from GitHub that " Basic authentication using a password to the API is deprecated and will soon no longer work" when I access my SourceTree.
They provide this link https://developer.github.com/changes/2020-02-14-deprecating-password-auth/
But I am not sure how to implement that in SourceTree.
You can switch to using a personal access token in place of your Github account password in Sourcetree. Here are the instructions for generating a personal access token in Github:
Once you've got the token, you can edit the settings for your Github account in Sourcetree and simply overwrite the saved password with the API token instead.
I just tried this, and was told to replace my email with my github username. I did that, pasted the PAT in the password field, and was not able to log in.
The old password that had been used with my email continued to work.
Is there more to this process than simply "overwrite the saved password with the API token".
Jeremy, when I "copied" the key from GitHub and pasted it in the password box; it failed.
I saved the key to a text file, then copied the key from the text file, pasted it in the password field; that worked.
"Seems" to work at least. I suppose in a month, I'll know for sure.
