I have connected Source Tree (2.7.152) to BitBucket but since most recent update I have authentication issues. Each time when I try to pull or to push is telling me that credentials are invalid because of third party software and I need to go to Preferences -> Accounts and re-authenticate my account again.
Any clue what is going on?
Pushing to https://firstname.lastname@example.org/mydev/repo.git
remote: Invalid username or password. If you log in via a third party service you must ensure you have an account password set in your account profile.
fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://email@example.com/mydev/repo.git/'
Completed with errors, see above
I fixed this by deleting the whole Sourcetree folder in Library/application support/sourcetree and re-installing. Prior to that I had changed my password, which didn't work, but maybe it had an effect (in case someone tries this, and the first step doesn't solve it by itself).
This was on Sourcetree 2.7 on Mac OS Sierra.
POS F'ing Sourcetree. This happens with almost every update. Everything is/has been fine, install the latest update, all of my authentications fail, constantly have to enter username/password. Here's a great tip that I just found: Don't use Sourcetree. Switch to command line (which I'm still not a fan of) or GitKraken. 0% issues. I hate you, Sourcetree. POS. Gone.
Looks like this is the same ssh issue which many folks are facing.
