SourceTree: Failed to write refresh token to keychain

I'm using macOS Sierra (10.12.2) on MacBook Pro (Early 2011). I have been using SourceTree since last year but this is the first time I am adding my accounts after I clean install my OS. I used to manually clone the repositories one by one.

I just installed SourceTree 2.4 (93) and try adding second account. That's when I found an error.

When I first download SourceTree, the setup process walk me through setting up the first account, which is GitHub account, at that works fine. After that, I go to Accounts in `Preferences` and add my second account which is Bitbucket account. I can `Connect Account` just fine and my username showed up. I click OK and then go to `remote` repository tab to see repository. That's when SourceTree display an error as follow:

I was asked to enter the Atlassian account again. I entered my username and password, but the error still keep coming back.

Then I tried running SourceTree from terminal, and I see that SourceTree cannot write token in keychain as follows:

So it seem that the problem is: SourceTree cannot write to `Keychain Access`, except for initial setup.


Are there any solution to this problem?
Thank you very much!

I have the exact same problem, and it is infuriating. The latest updates to SourceTree for OSX have broken both this and SSH functionality.

I'm also having this issues and I'm interested in a solution.

Same issue here - fails for Github for me
