SourceTree registration?

I registered when I came up in Atlassian but it keeps asking me to register when I try to re-register it tells me I am registered but it won't let me into SourceTree

If it is free, I shouldn't ever have to register it, period.

It's free as in cost-free, not free as in open-source. Atlassian isn't obligated to provide this software at all. If they choose to provide it at no cost, but require registration, that's their right. If you don't want to register, there are many alternatives.

Oh, I understand that. It was just frustrating to hear "It's free!" then when my users go to install it, they come back to me, "But it says I have to register." Just creates a little bit of confusion. It might be better to require registration up front (before download) so it's clear you have to register to use it.

Can you describe the steps you are using to register?

I came up in SourceTree but registration pop up forced me to register.. so I filled in the registration and received a welcome – you are registered. (I did my name, company, email and a password etc.) Back to sourceTree and I get the registration pop up again. ( I did try to re-register because I want to get into SourceTree – and it says that I am registered. ) That was on Oct 30th. Not sure if this helps any.

You should be able to Import your existing registration the next time it asks. If you log in to, you should be able to "Download your SourceTree License", which should be useable with "Import License".
