sourcetree hosted repositories authentication error

whalie Sep 10, 2015

i got a problem so i'll keep it short.

i enabled 2 factor authentication on bit bucket 
i added  a ssh key 
put the ssh key in the sourcetree settings 

edited my Bitbucket account to ssh in the  hosted repositories screen

after doing this i get a login failed on my screen with the error message  "forbidden" 

what actions can i take to fix this ?

Yes - Sourcetree currently does not support 2fa.

Bitbucket Cloud now supports app specific passwords. You can configure a specific password for SourceTree in the Security section of your Bitbucket settings. At the moment, we do not support native 2FA in SourceTree. 

Thank you.
