Sourcetree how to use source tree with an Assembla git repository?


I would like to know if it is possible to use SourceTree with an Assembla hosted git repository? I tried adding the assembla's clone URL while adding a repository in sourceTree but I get permission denied. I do not find any place where I can add my public key in order to authenticate with the assembla server.

I found the answer myself. I just needed to create a public/private key pair in the .ssh directory in my home using the 'ssh-keygen' command. Once the pair is created, I uploaded the in my assembla profile. Now I can add the clone URL of the assembla repository.

Glad you got it sorted out. Yes, SourceTree automatically uses the global SSH configuration for your user (that may have to change to a more explicit SSH setup in future version because of Lion's sandboxing, but that will be made clear when it happens)

  1. Go to assembla, your repsority. Select http for othe link (default is ssh)
  2. Past that link directlly int the source directory. it should then ask you for username and password.
