how do you configure sourcetree to work with github PAT?

My new token works fine from command line git, but nothing I try will be accepted by sourcetree.

I'm using basic auth.

For user name iIve tried my github username, the email address I use, others. But nothing works. With command line git I use my full email for username, and I use the token as the password. no problems.

What does sourcetree want as my username? The same thing command line git wants (my email)? something else?

do I need to give my token more scopes just so source tree can log in? I've pretty much given up using sourcetree for anything that requires auth. I use it for diffing and seeing what's checked out, but when I need to push or anything I just use the command line.
