Which permissions needed for source tree using an APP password?

RobbieRobski January 11, 2019

I'm trying to setup my app password but my first attempt is failing.

I followed the instructions here
https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucket/app-passwords-828781300.html

 

I have set full permissions for Repositories and Pull Requests

Failed to check login for user [myuser]
Your credentials lack one or more required privilege scopes.
Your credentials lack one or more required privilege scopes.

Which other group does it need permissions for?

I've tried adding Projects but I get the same thing

Lastly I even tried all of these http://prntscr.com/m5yanr   and I'm still getting the same privlege scopes messages.

 

Doesn't seem to make a difference if I choose https or ssh

Oath used to work great. And I wouldn't mind having to enter my TFA every session...

You will certainly need the Account Read at least as Sourcetree attempts to read your user profile to confirm the credentials are good.

What sort of useless answer is this?? 'Account read at least.. why don't you know exactly what App permissions are required to enable Sourcetree --  Sourcetree is YOUR product

How about you spell out the minimum permissions it requires.  I gave up trying to find the minimum mix and ended up just giving sourcetree app permissions to EVERYTHING so the bloody thing would work.

It's this kind of rubbish support from Atlassian that is why I've migrated most of my gits over to Github.

Account Read and Repositories Read and Write are required, worked in SourceTree

The solution per help desk. Use SSH protocol and not HTTPS.
With SSH it will work either with Basic or OAuth

Did you clean the file 

%localappdata%\Atlassian\SourceTree\passwd

 

before setting the App Password? If not my SourceTree doesn't work.

Also can I ask why you stopped using OAuth?

RobbieRobski January 24, 2019

Because your documentation specifically says to use basic

Oh, this is hilarious. No response? Are we supposed to use OAuth or Basic with App Password, Atlassian?

You will need to use Account:Read and Repositories:Read and Repositories:Write.

I would strongly recommend using OAuth though because it is already configured with the correct permissions.

Except it isn't on Mac.
