      Description

      Giles Hammond asked this question · 16 karma · Dec 18 at 05:48 AM

      I have a repository on BitBucket, created by importing the public Sparkle for OSX project from Github.

      If I try to clone this to my local machine with Sourcetree everything works fine:

      git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree clone --recursive https://MyUsername@bitbucket.org/MyUsername/sparkle.git /Users/Giles/Dropbox/Projects/sparkle

      However, if I try and do the same to a submodule within an existing project it fails with a password issue:

      git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree submodule add -f https://MyUsername@bitbucket.org/MyUsername/sparkle.git External/Sparkle
       
      fatal: could not read Password for 'https://MyUsername@bitbucket.org': Device not configured

      Does anyone know if I am doing something very wrong here? I am fairly new to Git, Sourcetree and Bitbucket. Perhaps this is a bug though - the password is obviously working when cloning in some instances.
      Thank you
