I am trying to set up source tree and connect to my bitbucket account.
I am using https://bitbucket.org as the root url and Andrew_Watkins as the username.
I get this error after I enter my password: "Failed to check login for user [Andrew_Watkins]: the URL 'https://bitbucket.org/rest/api/1.0/users/Andrew_Watkins' returned code 'NotFound'."
Any suggestions to resolve this are welcome.
Also, I can access my bitbucket account directly without issue.
Could it be that you selected 'bitbucket server' instead of 'atlassian account?' in the step before?
The bitbucket server option is for when you install your own server, not when you use the bitbucket.com server.
Source: I encountered the same problem just now.
Hi Andrew, the URL https://bitbucket.org/rest/api/1.0/users/Andrew_Watkins is not a valid one. When it asks you for the URL you should enter https://bitbucket.org/Andrew_Watkins.
Also, have you followed the steps at Get started with Sourcetree to connect Sourcetree to your Bitbucket account?
Let us know how it goes!
Hi Ana. I have the same issue. Unfortunately, your suggestion didn't work. Also, I can't even get started with Sourcetree since I can't get past the initial setup where it asks for the login server and user name. Like Andrew, I am able to directly login to bitbucket just fine.
Hi, I am unable to install Sourcetree too. I selected Bitbucket during installation, my Root URL is: https://bitbucket.org/mvanicky, my Username is mvanicky. Error I got is: Failed to check login for user [mvanicky]. The URL 'https://bitbucket.org/mvanicky/rest/api/1.0/users/mvanicky' returned code 'NotFound'.
Hi @Miroslav Vanický, my guess is that you're referring to the registration options that we offer at the beginning while you're installing Sourcetree, that are using either your Atlassian account or your Bitbucket Server account. If that's the case, it is failing because you're entering your Bitbucket Cloud account, which is not an option. You will need to use your Atlassian account instead (note that your Atlassian account uses the same credentials as your Bitbucket Cloud account).
If this is not your case, please send us a screenshot of where you're stuck and we'll be happy to continue helping you.
Hi @margus21, our Cloud products use Single Sign On, which means they all use the same set of credentials. So yes, your Atlassian account credentials are the same as your Bitbucket account credentials, I wanted to make this extra clear for the users that are still not familiar with it and might have trouble remembering which password they used.
However, you don't necessarily need to have a Bitbucket Cloud account to use Sourcetree (you can be using Github or any other service), and that's why the 'Atlassian account' option is there. So again, yes, the person who did this login screen thought about the different possibilities our users have.
Hope this makes sense to you.
