Hello! It sounds like the URL for the remote is configured for HTTPS rather than SSH. Could you check the URL of the repo for me?

  • Open the repo
  • Click "Settings"
  • Double-click on the first item in the "Remote repository paths" list
  • Check the URL / Path


If the URL / Path matches the SSH pattern, then could you run the following command for me?

  • Open the repo
  • Click "Terminal"
  • Type: git remote -v
  • Check the output and see what pattern it has



The url is right.

git remote -v

origin  git@[IPADDRESS]:/data/code/hej.git (fetch)
origin  git@[IPADDRESS]:/data/code/hej.git (push)

The url is right, becase with gui functions, it is possible to make all actions (push, fetch .... )

By opened Terminal, it is not possible

So if I understand correctly, pushing works in Sourcetree but not via command line?
