Username and password are not accepted in Sourcetree and the account is locked


I have a problem specific to SourceTree. While using a Mac with an Intel processor, I switched to a Mac with an M1 chip. All my keychains and app files were moved from there. SourceTree accounts are connected to Bitbucket via Crowd. In other words, the username and passwords are actually the username and passwords of the domain. But when I transact to Bitbucket via SourceTree, SourceTree locks my domain account. The weird thing is, it doesn't always do it. It's a random crash that doesn't happen after a clear transaction.

After that, I did research on the internet and deleted all the passwords of SourceTree in Keychain and logged in from the beginning. Then I uninstalled SourceTree and installed the latest version from scratch. But there, it is stated that the last version is 4.1.7[250], and it upgrades it to 4.1.7[243]. I looked at the Embedded Git version and it's version 2.31.0. I removed the default username in "Preferences -> Advanced" but it does not select the new one even though I set it as set default. Despite all this, my password continues to be locked periodically. 

I would be happy if you suggest any solution.
