Today started out fun. I've been using the old SourceTree client for over a year, with key authentication via pageant. Today my co-worker changed permissions settings on the bucket, and I found that I could no longer access a couple of repositories via SourceTree - it kept prompting me for a username and password. Through the git CLI, I was still able to perform all the usual tasks on the sasme repository using username/password authentication.
In an effort to fix this, I updated all software to the latest versions installed. No dice, it still wouldn't work. So I created a new key, and add it to pageant and bitbucket, deleting the old key from both. I only have one key.
Under "Edit hosting account" for my only BitBucket account, I have "preferred protocol: SSH", as per the instructions. I have the green tick and "Authentication OK".
Under repository settings, I have my origin path. In there, the URL is ssh://bitbucket.org/~~/~~, host type is bitbucket, username is my username - the one that works through the CLI.
Everything is looking good, right? Until I try to do anything, upon which I receive the error message above. If I try to use the git CLI, I'm told that it can't communicate with my authentication agent.
How do I resolve this?
