I tried to clone a repository for my Sourcetree application but I got the following error:
Command: git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks ls-remote https://*USERemail@example.com/*COMPANY*/*REPO*.git
Error: remote: Bitbucket Cloud recently stopped supporting account passwords for Git authentication.
remote: See our community post for more details: https://atlassian.community/t5/x/x/ba-p/1948231
remote: App passwords are recommended for most use cases and can be created in your Personal settings:
fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://bitbucket.org/*COMPANY*/*REPO*.git/'
I've tried both OAuth and Basic authentication (Sourcetree says "Authentication OK" for both versions), but I keep getting the same error.
My colleagues could clone, we can't find the cause of the error.
