The remote service said: 'Forbidden'

I've recently come back after a long hiatus (1 year) and found that sourcetree needed to update. I updated to 1.8.1 and now i'm getting an error that Sourcetree can not connect to BitBucket. Is Bitbucket experiencing issues today?

  • I've tried a fresh install of Bitbucket
  • I've generated a new SSH key. Replaced the old key on my Bitbucket account and on sourcetree
  • I've changed the username and password for my Bitbucket (two step auth enabled)


Login fail for your Bitbucket account.
