Using SourceTree 3.0.1 with 2FA and GitHub on Mac OS (403 no auth)

I can't push my changes to my github repo from Mac OS with latest SourceTree and Git


What I did

1) I have downloaded the latest version on SourceTree 3.0.1

2) I have downloaded the latest version of Git 2.19

3) I have selected system git

4) Added my oauth github account

But in the request, the SourceTree don't ask any permission except read-only.

And after my push .... I got the error:

Pushing to https://.......ate.git

remote: Permission to .......ate.git denied to USER123.

fatal: unable to access 'https://......ate.git/': The requested URL returned error: 403


I did the same with Windows SourceTree and everything is fine!

Windows version of the app asks a lot of different permissions!


What am I doing wrong?

OAuth is used for REST interactions with remote services. Git actions' authentication, depending on protocol:

  • HTTPS - your user/password combination for account
  • SSH - whatever keys are loaded by macOS (ssh-add -l will answer) and uploaded to the service

Please let us know any differences between the configurations that might exist as well.
