Why does Sourcetree not allow me to delete my Github password?


I am on source tree version on Windows 10 64 bit

  1. I go to Tools -> OptionsAuthentication tab
  2. I expand the Github - Https Saved Passwords  section
  3. I click the Delete button to delete my password
  4. I am asked if I am sure I want to delete the password. I click Yes

Observe: The Github password collapses, but is not removed from the Saved Passwords section

Expected: Deleting a password should remove the entry from the Github - Https Saved Passwords section



This is a bug I've encountered before so I think it's been around for a while. Is there a fix for this?

Hi Victor! Thank you for reporting this. This issue was already submitted to our issue tracker and you can find it at SRCTREEWIN-8551.

The credentials are stored in Windows Credential Manager and can be deleted from there.

Git credentials are prefixed by 'git:', Mercurial credentials by 'hg:' and Sourcetree REST credentials by 'sourcetree'. In the meantime, you can have your password deleted by doing so directly in the Windows Credential Manager.

Hope that helps!


The link is broken and it still happens to me. What is a good workaround?
