Unable to do PULL (permission error) from Git Bash but PULL works in SourceTree

SourceTree does the PULL for a repository without any errors. But I get the below error when I tried to do a PULL from Git Bash.

I am new to Git and I prefer using command line. Please advice. Permission denied (publickey).

fatal: Could not read from remote repository.


Please make sure you have the correct access rights

and the repository exists.

Hi Priya

seems like you try to do you git actions via ssh.

How did you configure sourcetree access to the repo?

While trying to access the repo from git bash it seem that the private key that you use has not a corresponding public key at bitbucket configured.




Kurt - that exactly was the problem. I generated a key from Git bash and added it to the Bitbucket account and it fixed the issue. Thanks!
