Hi Nancy! Can you elaborate your description a bit more so we can help you with this? Please let us know:

  • Are you getting this error when connecting directly to Bitbucket, or when trying to connect to Bitbucket from SourceTree?
  • Are you using Bitbucket Server or Cloud? If Server, which version?
  • What version of SourceTree and OS are you using?
  • What are the steps you're performing when you get this error? Can you send a screenshot?

Best regards!

I've figured it out. Bitbucket.org won't take a user name any longer. Now it wants an email address. Ok, did that. However, when I try to login through sourcetree it seems to want to use my username. I kept trying to put my email address in there like bitbucket.org insists on.  So the issue is solved for me, but this is weirdly inconsistent and confusing.
