I am trying to list my available remote repositories to find one to clone.
I am prompted for my github password because:
When I attempt to refresh the list, I get an error:
message: Requires authentication
Sometimes I get a small popup with username/password. I fill in the password (which I have verified is correct), and I still get the same error message.
Other times, I get a large dialog to allow SourceTreeForMac from Atlassian access to my github account. Again, I put in the same username and password.
I still get an error message saying that it failed; however, I also got an email implying that it succeeded.
One thing to note is that my list of accounts is using an ssh key, not a username/password (basic/ssh/default).
I recently switched all of my repositories from using https to ssh.
P.S. I realize that there are at least a few issues with similar (or identical) titles, but none seemed to be the same problem and/or there were no clear solutions.
Very sorry for the inconvenience caused by Sourcetree. Have you tried removing your github account and adding it back?
Before you do so, please make sure you also remove any keychain items that might have been not cleaned up by Sourcetree. We see these issues sometimes when there is a problem accessing keychain or there are duplicates in the keychain which aren’t visible when inspected. Many a times, a restart of the Mac also has helped get around permissions in keychain.
Should this not resolve the problem, please feel free to get back here and we’ll help you out.
