After upgrading to sourcetree 2.6.10 I had to renew my credentials.
Therefore (following the result of other threats) I used the Atlassian account to login, resettet the password and my credentials are valid and I'm able to enter My Atlassian Webppage & Account.
But I I use that credentials (mailadress & password) on the sourcetree login I always get:
" Log in to continue - Log in with Atlassian account Something went wrong while attempting to validate your credentials."
Can somebody expalin wwhat I have to change/correct that I'm able to use sourcetree again...?
Thanks all for your support!
Michi from Vienna
Remarks: I'm using Windows 10 client for sourcetree
Hi Michi, welcome to the Community!
Is Internet Explorer updated to the latest version? Sourcetree relies on it for authentication and might throw errors if it's not the latest.
If you're in the latest IE and still unable to log in, please let us know so we can continue helping you!
Hi Michael, that should be fine.
Are you still having issues to log in? If so, can you check the log? In Windows it's located at
Can you also send us a screenshot of the error message you get?
Still the same :(
I resetted again the password to ensure using the correct one...
Afterwards using my credentials (mail & new password) after selecting to use Atlassian account and get again
Log in to continue - Log in with Atlassian account Something went wrong while attempting to validate your credentials.
The logfile shows
