Setup Github with Personal Access Token

Good day,

I have worked through numerous articles and can not get my Github account set up with a PAT in SourceTree.

I am running Windows 10 and SourceTree V3.4.8

Amongst others I have tried the following:

Deleted all cached logins in Windows Credential Manager.
In SourceTree deleted and re-created my Github account.
Set auth type to Basic.


But still when doing a Push in SourceTree I am getting the following.


remote: Support for password authentication was removed on August 13, 2021. Please use a personal access token instead.
remote: Please see for more information.
fatal: Authentication failed for ''


Where in SourceTree should I save my Personal Access Token? In the password field?
What kind of authentication should be selected? Basic? I assume.

I do not get the prompt for user & password when doing the Push.

Why is this so damn hard to setup in SourceTree? :)



Thank you all in advance :)
