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.
Guys, Please try this as well. SourceTree is having the Embedded version of Git. By default, SourceTree will not use System installed Git, instead it will be using the embedded git. This credential-cache problem will not be there in latest Git version. I'd suggest to upgrade your embedded git version of sourcetree and configure sourcetree to use system git instead of embedded git.
How to do that?
1. In SourceTree, Navigate to Tools > Options > Git
2. Look for the Git Version section
3. Observe what version of Git System has and What version of Git embedded in sourcetree
4. Switch to the system git version (if that is latest)
5. Once done, restart the sourcetree and try again the login, this time it will not ask you again
I have the same problem and I've always used the System Git, not Embedded Git.
I have even removed the BitBucket account completely from the accounts (Tools > Options > Authentication) and Windows' own credential manager (Control Panel > User Accounts > Credential Manager > Windows Credentials)
git 2.18.0 (system), SourceTree 2.16.10
This seems to be something else entirely (my guess would be the "registration")
This is not work for me (git 2.18.0 (system), SourceTree 2.16.10). I've also tried to remove credentials from source tree and windows account manager, but "bitbucket login" window still appears every several minutes (even after I entered right password or refresh auth token sucessfully (green sign)
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.
Well here's what I did to fix the problem. Incidentally, I had first updated to the latest version of SourceTree (18.104.22.168) and that didn't help.
