Prompted for login again and again... Edited

I successfully added my Bitbucket account in SourceTree. It correctly shows my repository in the "remote" tab, but when I try to clone it I am prompted again and again for username and password and it is never actually cloned.

What can I do?

Btw: it all works fine when using git from the commmandline.

Do yourself a favor and ditch Altassian.

Altassian , Sourcetree , and Github are a f***ing joke . I only use them because my work uses it .

Lots of inconsistency with the way their passwords work. Seems credentials are stored on different databases there and not in synch with each other. 

The best answer to this problem I've found so far is simple: don't use sourcetree.

Here is some more information. When I fetch from the repository in source tree, I am prompted for the password, but it never accepts it. Here is the log:

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false fetch origin
Logon failed, use ctrl+c to cancel basic credential prompt.
remote: Invalid username or password
fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://aktionariat@bitbucket.org/aktionariat/aktionariat.git/'

Logon failed, use ctrl+c to cancel basic credential prompt.
remote: Invalid username or password
fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://aktionariat@bitbucket.org/aktionariat/aktionariat.git/'

Completed with errors, see above.

When I do the same from the commandline by entering "git fetch", I am first prompted to enter my password through a "Bitbucket login" window, which always fails. Then I am prompted for the password directly on the commandline, where it always works.

It would be great if anyone could help. Setting up ssh keys did not seem to help either.

I have the same problem. 
The only difference is that my repository is on GitHub,

Such a shame that community still do not provide answer.

Update your git to the latest version
