SourceTree 2.7 constantly asks for credentials

Since updating to 2.7.0 SourceTree is basically broken for me.

It constantly asks for my credentials; apparently it does this because our self hosted BitBucket instance blocks my account after SourceTree spams too many requests to do.. something.

Once my account is blocked, the error seems to trigger the credentials dialog.

Had no problems before this version. Others seem to also be experiencing issues:


More Info: I'm using manually added local repositories that are cloned from the mentioned BitBucket instance.

Came across this same issue and multiple posts too. So consolidated my research and fix at one place The summary is, problem solved when I used the same password for Atlassian's account address(which is the Gmail ID I used to OAuth to my bitbucket user), like that of my Gmail ID.

I have since found out that the issue only occurs if I use repositories with https authentication. I switched everything over to ssh, and then it just works.

Have you added your account in Sourcetree? If yes, can you please confirm if the protocol associated with the account is same as the remote URL of your cloned repository?

No, I have not added any accounts in SourceTree
