Hi Nancy! Can you elaborate your description a bit more so we can help you with this? Please let us know:
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.
I had this same error; and after several hours this is what fixed it (major thanks to user TrainLayout for step 3 and 5):
Hopefully this should fix things.
EDIT: Another potential cause of this, is that when you copy+paste the password, you're accidentally including some additional hidden characters. I recommend pasting the password into Notepad, then copying it out of Notepad and into the password field to "scrub" any hidden characters out.
Thank you this helped me also!!
To be clear:
1) This worked for me adding "Basic" Credentials. I still cannot get the OAuth mode to work.
2) It is the app password "label" that needs to be all lowercase, as you have no control over the content of the actual password.
In retrospect the error message "unexpected character encountered while parsing value: B. " is a clue. The first uppercase letter in my app password label was "B". My name.
Hi , I´m frustrated.. login should be simple.
created app pass, ssh keys (openssh and putty) , trying every combination and still unable to login .
win 10 , sourcetree 3.4.9 ,,
tried using username, email, also both combined with bitbucket
also tired OAuth (even worse , does not returns from the localhost... request )
console git works ok, but sourcetree feels impossible. any advise?
I had the same error because I enabled two-step verification. To overcome this issue you have 2 options:
1- disable two-step verification (not recommended).
2- create an app password and use this password to login in sorcetree.
Steps to create an app password:
1- go to bitbucket, click on your avatar
2- choose personal settings
3- go to app passwords. choose create app password.
4- choose the permission associate with this password.
5- copy the generated password and use it to login in sourcetree (please take care that the password will be shown only in this step and you can't get it again).
I am getting the same problem and an a more meanigful error message and how to resolve the sitution would assist. I've tried all combinations of username and email, HTTP and SSH and tried logging out and it again as per the previous post without no success.
I am trying to set up a App password using the instructions on this page https://support.atlassian.com/bitbucket-cloud/docs/app-passwords/
When try to complete the step: Enter the app password you just created as your Password. If you're on Windows, you'll need hit Refresh Password first.
I do so and I get this error:
Any assistance appreciated.
@Ana Retamal Can you provide an official solution to this error message Unexpected character encountered while parsing value: T.Path '', line 0, position 0.?
