password I enter on Sourcetree is correct and works for a few minutes but then i get asked to reenter it. And yes I tell it to remember the password. this started happening after I updated to the most recent version and wow is it annoying.
I am having the same problem. I noticed it when I upgraded to Windows 10. I can't say for sure it's because of the upgrade to the OS.
For what it's worth, I can get it to stop temporarily by clicking the "Show hosted repositories" icon at the bottom left when you open source tree. Then "Edit Accounts", click the account and "Edit", then "Change Password".... It will eventually drop the password again. It's incredibly frustrating, and I am about to drop sourcetree and possibly Bitbucket due to this, if its not fixed.
Sourcetree seems to have some problems importing old config files from a previous Version.
Changing stuff in "Edit Accounts ..." / Hosted Repositories seems to make Sourcetree rewrite some of it and solves the Problem.
Also try to change the preferred Protocol... that did the trick for me.
First time and ~a year ago I had this problem I started deleting Stuff in C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree
I cant remember exactly what I did back then, but I think deleting Accounts.json (and reentering the data in Sourcetree) worked.
After tthe Sourcetree last upgrade in MAY I can't log in Sourcetree anymore - I'm on Windows 8.
I've done everything, but I coldn't find an answer.
I've tried Go to View > Show Hosted Repositories > Edit Accounts > find the relevant account and click 'Edit' > Change Password.
The system aproves my Atlassian PWD but gives an error message after. "Please enter your Bitbucket/GitHub username" .
But from June "Atlassian account is coming to Bitbucket!" - eveyone has received this mail, so it's supposed to be only one account for all the Atlassian app.
How can this bug be solved, anyone found a solution?
The same problem when updating to 2.3.1.
It helped to me to delete bitbucket account in Tools -> Options -> Authentication and then to edit %AppData%\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\passwd (in Notepad++) and to delete any unused/wrong username password pairs.
After deleting one for bitbucket it stopped asking for password.
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
