SourceTree 3.0.1 on Mac was working great with my company git repo (using HTTPS connection) until my company made me update my password - which happens every 90 days.

After hunting around in Atlassian community posts I found that I could delete a file named:
And then SourceTree 3.0.1 on Mac prompted me for the new username.
This seems like a really lame process to change the HTTPS git password within SourceTree 3.0.1 on Mac ... is there a better way? If not, please consider this as a request to add a feature to make it simpler to change HTTPS git passwords within SourceTree on Mac.
Hi @Adam Whitney,
Were you unable to edit your account's password in Preferences -> Accounts and have it set properly? Those workarounds are usually only necessary if it doesn't save properly.
