I've migrated to a new Mac, and SourceTree won't let me pull or push. It says "Password Required For user git on host github.com", but neither my Github or Atlassian passwords are accepted. I tried generating a new SSH key and uploading it to my github account, but that didn't work either. Any insight would be much appreciated!
This is along the lines of what worked for me too. However, I found the answer on github and that calmed my nerves for changing random config files. Apparently it's something for macOS Sierra 10.12.2 or later.
Your Atlassian password definitely won't work. GitHub is not an Atlassian product.
If you have 2-Factor Authentication enabled in GitHub, you can follow these instructions to use password authentication in SourceTree: https://confluence.atlassian.com/sourcetreekb/two-factor-authentication-2fa-with-github-in-sourcetree-402033499.html
We would need more information to debug the SSH issue, but you might try ideas from this post: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20644173/unable-to-get-ssh-keys-working-between-sourcetree-and-github
Thanks so much! I followed the 2FA instructions to generate the token, and went to SourceTree settings > Edit Account and pasted it there (following https://clburlison.com/github-two-factor-authentication/), but I'm still getting the password required dialog (which doesn't accept the token either). Not sure I understand.
I'd seen the other post, but the Mac app doesn't have the "Tools" menu described in the first answer, and the "correct repo path" in the second answer is how I have things set up already.
