Sourcetree commit doesn't work

Anton Podkovirin July 2, 2020

After installing Sourcetree on a new laptop, I'm unable to commit. If i press the commit button on the bottom right, i get the "User Information" pop-up. After pressing "OK" nothing happens. The commit button on the top left shows changes. When i press it, nothing happens.

Some details and observations: 

* We use a standalone Bitbucket server

* I'm able to clone repos from the bitbucket server and move between branches.

* The commit doesn't work with any of the buttons (top left, bottom right or the drop down menu)

* I'm able to commit using the terminal window

* After commuting using the terminal window, I'm able to push using the Sourcetree   button 

* Tried to install 3 different versions of Sourcetree (3.3.9, 3.3.8, 3.1.2), removing the AppData folder before a new installation. Wasn't able to commit with any version. 

* Tried using the embedded Git, as well as a standalone version

 

Has anyone experienced a similar issue? 

Any thoughts on what else i can try to pinpoint the issue?

 

Thanks,

Unchecking the "Set global author details for Git and Mercurial" checkbox before OKing the "User information" popup solved the issue for me. I had to uncheck it, press OK, and then commit again. Did that once and now it commits every time.

I'm having the same issue. What does unchecking "Set global author details for Git and Mercurial" do? I haven't tried this yet, because I'm always overly cautious about changing things when I don't know what the effect will be. Thanks!
