SourceTree on Mac can't remember passwords


I'm accessing a remote Mercurial repository over https using SourceTree on Mac. SourceTree is set to use the system mercurial (5.0).

Any time I access the repository, SourceTree prompts me for the password repeatedly. Although I have "Store Password in Keychain" checked, this apparently doesn't happen.

@bgannin Bumping this issue, as it still happening for in 4.0.1 (234), nearly one full year later.
The fact that just for pulling, it asks the password twice is a very big UX friction.

Hi @Peter Pebler,

Unfortunately I don't have an immediate answer to solve this problem. There are some underlying issues due to the complexity in the app's various authentication layers and the architecture as a whole is going to be revisited in a future release to definitively resolve issues such as the one you're encountering. Our apologies for the inconvenience, we appreciate your patience.

Is this issue fixed? I'm still getting this type of issue with v3.1.2

It's really annoying that I need to re-authenticate both my GitLab and GitHub accounts each time I re-open Sourcetree.
