Multiple git accounts on SourceTree

I have multiple git accounts on SourceTree.

But when I push to a repository on some account, It says default account doesn't have permissions to do so.

Is possible the SourceTree ask the which account to use to push every time i try?

OS: Windows

Hello! This issue can be solved by adding your username to the remote repository path:

  • Open the repo
  • Click "Settings"
  • Double click on the "origin" item in the listing
  • Edit the url to add your username before the URL of the repo. Here's an example: ""
  • You should be prompted for a password the next time you try to push or pull

I have the same question so I tried @Mike Corsaro suggestion.

adding the username doesn't fix my problem.

Adding the password for one account breaks the auth for the other.

In sourcetree / options / authentication I can see my two accounts are setup correctly. However there is only one password in 'Git saved passwords'. I can delete this password and connect to one of the accounts but this 'breaks' the connection to the other.

It would be great if someone can suggest what I'm doing wrong here.

I have exactly same problem!
Any solution yet?

The same problem. Any workaround yet?

I've just found a solution:

Two Simple Steps to Configure Git for Multiple GitHub Accounts on Windows
1. Enable Windows Credential Manager

git config --list

git config --global credential.helper wincred

2. Enable WCM for Multiple Credentials

git config --global credential.useHttpPath true

I also have the same problem! Do you have any solution?

I solved it in Advanced menu that can be accessed from the double-arrow on the top right corner of the Preferences screen(shortcut " CMD + , "  on MacOS) ..

In this windows, I changed the username related to the host that I was having auth issues. In my case, the SourceTree was choosing a wrong user...

I hope this help.
