Pushing to

fatal: unable to access '': The requested URL returned error: 403

 I can successfully push from the command line. I have tried updating credentials in Sourcetree > Preferences > Accounts without success. Any help on this topic?

How to change this url??

You might not have the write access to the repository

Yes you tell your repository admin to give you the write access not the read access.

Waited for a day , did not make any changes. It started working. 



Nothing seems to be working. Got a single account, I can click the "Remote" button on Sourcetree and it navigates to the Bitbucket. But when pushing the changes, it throws 403 error. 

It was working till yesterday and nothing has changed since then. I also tried creating new app password and under Authentication it shows the green icon but still not able to commit the changes.

I can access to bitbucket throug chrome but When I tried to clone project from bitbucket I had also this issue and I solve it with following code 

git config --global http.proxy http://proxi_ip_or_host:80

git config --global http.proxy - you proxy ip 

after two dots : 8080 your port number
