Sourcetree asks to configure remote settings on every pull request

Almost every time I make a pull request, I get message "you don't have any remotes which have extended integration settings configured, you need to edit your remotes to add details such as the hosting type and base URL. Click the settings button to open your remote list."

When I open settings, everything is correct. If I click edit, then I don't edit anything and click ok, after that pull request works. If I make another pull request right after that, it works, but if I wait for example one day, then it asks to configure again.

Still exists in 3.3.4 version. I do not need to perform any changes in repository settings. The only action I make is click OK button on "Remote details" window and all works fine... until next time.

Version 3.3.9 still has this issue.

I've gotten kind of used to it but it's still 10 seconds wasted per day : E

Same. My configs already have the HTTPS. Doesnt help on my Win10 / ST 3.3.8

2 years of this bug for you? Man, this is crazy.

You might say it's getting tiresome:)

I gave up and moved to GitKraken

That's what I am using too now. 

I'm also tempted to swap, but the GitKraken UI is annoying/isn't as simple as SourceTree, which does clearly show your branches and submodules and features. It gives me just what I need for work and nothing more. 
But yeah, this is bad.

Over the years and now still have this the same issue

And similar to this over the years issue with Beyond Compare sometimes stop working with ST without any visible reason


really glitchy soft :-(

Hello! This has been a tough one to debug on our end. To attempt to address the issue, we've made a change that will be rolled out in the 2.5 release. Hopefully this will solve it. Please follow this issue for progress.

Thanks, @Mike Corsaro.  I appreciate the info.  It's nice to know that you're aware.  If I can provide any of my system info -- within security reasoning, of course -- just ask.

Solved on Windows.

Make sure that the URL of your remote is the https:// one. Not the SSH compatible one.

Sample URLs for the Remote feature:

  • BAD URL:

Don't try to build it from this example URL. A safe bet is to simple go on, then click the clone button and switch the connection type from SSH to HTTPS and finally copy the URL.

This did not help me. I'm seeing this on version 3.0.8. Windows 10. It just started happening between code pushes to the same branch. Didn't restart or anything.

Same here, it will happen on every new branch. When I have openend the settings menu, it will not be asked again for that branch.

Windows 10 - SourceTree

Same here - been happening for quite some time across numerous SourceTree updates - including 2.4.8. Windows 10. 

Same thing here, Windows 10, SourceTree

Same issue for me: I have to set up Stash integration settings nearly every reboot. Though sometimes it disappears before reboot or is kept after reboot.

Tried update (several versions released since issues first appeared), complete reinstall, `sourcetreeconfig` removal. Nothing helped.

Issue still persists

Yup, I'm getting the same thing for my company's on-prem stash server. I have to set the `host type` and `host root url` everytime I restart the program on every single repo.

Hello! Which version of Sourcetree are you running, and on which OS? Thanks!

Windows, version

Is the extended integration with stash, bitbucket, or github?

I was hoping someone would have solved this because the same thing has been happening to me with the extended integration options for Stash.  Version  Although it's not quite every pull request.  It will hold for a while but reset itself eventually.  It's not updating the config files when I save the changes even though I'm running it as admin, and so I wonder if that's the problem.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled.  Does anyone know the format to manually update the config file for Stash extended options?
