Working with Multiple Git Accounts


We are new to Git and started using GitLab for all our private repositories and using SourceTree as desktop client App.

I have 2 company accounts ( and accessing GitLab projects from both companies. has permissions to Company-1 GitLab projects and same for the other user with Company-2 as well.

After I install SourceTree first time I can clone the GitLab URL of Company-1 and it asks for user credentials and I provided Company-1 user details and it worked. Now If I want to clone projects of Company-2 it says invalid Git. I understand SourceTree trying to use Company-1 credentials for Company-2 projects.

How can I make sure I can Clone projects from both the GitLab projects and commit in the same way as well.

I am not sure if the scenario in the question is valid for other users but for me it looks like a feature request? Please advise how can we use multiple accounts for different projects?
