In my attempts to get Sourcetree to not prompt me for a password to bitbucket all the time, I'm now down a rabbit hole where it won't connect to bitbucket at all.
This is Version 2.7 on Mac, connecting to Bitbucket cloud. I authenticate into Bitbuket using my Google credentials.
Sourcetree > Preferences > Accounts > Add ...
* Host: Bitbucket
* Auth Type: Basic
* Username: blah blah (got it from Bitbucket Settings > Account Settings > Username
* Protocol: HTTPS
* Password <- What goes here? I have configured an app password on Bitbucket under Settings > App passwords, and pasted the one generated into this, but I get "We couldn't connect to Bitbucket with your (blah blah) credentials. Check your username and try the password again."
(p.s. I've tried SSH also, but couldn;t get that working. Happy to give it another go though)
Thanks for the idea, Manjunath -- it accepts the credentials fine in Preferences > Accounts, but still prompts be for a password when I push to bitbucket, and the push fails with a bunch of errors such as:
Pushing to https://***.git

So that looks like a fresh hell to explore.
Apologies for the trouble here. This is a new issue that is being reported and I would appreciate if you can use a custom build and give me logs for this one.
This would help us identify and resolve the issue.
In the meanwhile, you can use ssh to work around these issues. If you have already generated an ssh key and uploaded it to bitbucket, please check if the key is also added to ssh-agent on macOS and add it if not already added by running below commands in terminal.
Check for keys in agent using

Atlassian, PLEASE, are you ever going to fix this issue? It continually prompts for user password when Pushing and Pulling. I enter my password and it will not accept it. Same errors as reported many times. I completely uninstalled SourceTree and reinstalled the latest version. Same thing.
