I have multiple accounts in git I committed code three weeks back with this account. I’ll unable to pull my code . I was getting The requested
URL returned error: 403
I’ll try Pushing to Git returning Error Code 403 fatal: HTTP request failed
but I couldn’t solved my error
git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false fetch origin remote: Forbidden fatal: unable to access 'https://[email protected]/chantidurgam/patanjali.git/': The requested URL returned error: 403
Completed with errors, see above.
What needs to be checked before anything else is the
access level, which should be set to
write. This can happen if you were added to the repo by someone else, and they forgot to grant you the required permissions.
I had the same issue when using the git cli and sourcetree – and doing the below solved it.
This is basically an auth issue and git had stored my creds for both bitbucket and github. All I had to do was delete those saved entries using sourcetree.
I am using SourceTree, so went to Tools -> Options -> Authentication
and under git saved passwords, I deleted them all.
This post can lead to other ways of doing the same as well.
git config --global --unset credential.helper
The above code worked for me. As @Kunal said, I think a reason I had this issue was as a result of saving my credentials a while back and this causing an auth issue now. I hope the code works, this stumped me for over an hour.
Here’s how I solved mine.
- Go to bitbucket and open the repository.
Click the button and copy the url. It will look something like this: git clone https://[email protected]/something/something.git
- Open your terminal for and type the following
Then just do git push.
Note: Git may prompt you to do this.
git push --set-upstream origin master
Do it. I did and mine works now.
Reset the git credentials:
If its ubuntu system:
Unset the username and password
git config --global --unset credential.helper git config --unset credential.helper
Open the .git-crendentials and remove existing username and password
https://username:[email protected] to
Store git credentials again:
git config --global credential.helper store git pull
If it is windows:
Hi guys I am getting Support for password authentication was removed on August 13, 2021. Please use a personal access token instead. remote: Please see https://github.blog/2020-12-15-token-authentication-requirements-for-git-operations/ for more information.
Problem solution step by step
Now we have need Token authentication requirements for Git operations becouse Github has made changes in password authentication for security purpose.
There are some you need follow to generate Personal access tokens.
direct link https://github.com/settings/tokens/new for create personal
Step 1 – Open GitHub and sign in with your credentials.
Step 2 – Click on the Setting menu.
Step 3 – In Setting menu you click on Developer Settings, there are two option avaialable for OAuth apps and Personal access tokens.
step 5 – click on the Generate new Token button.
Step 7 – After that generate new token. Copy that generated token and use this token to access git with username and token.
Now Manage your credentials in system
For window user
1.) Open Control Panel => User Accounts => Manage your credentials => Windows Credentials.
In password box paste your access token and click to save button and reference your desktop.
Now you can access git.
If you are access git in android studio, if ask for a password then add GitHub Personal access token instead of your password.
And if you want use android terminal then paste cammand in terminal
git push https://[email protected]/username/yourrep.git
Hi if you have problem when you want to push your project in your git hub account and final error was 403-fatal-http-request-failed you sign in another account in your PC
you must deleted that for this you must follow this address:
? Control PanelUser AccountsCredential Manager and remove past account in github
this address is useful for Windows system
For me this turned out to be a problem with 2-factor authentication between my Linux client and the Bitbucket website. When I went to do a pull from my server I got asked for my User:Pass and upon entering that correctly it gave me a
The requested URL returned error: 403.
I removed the 2-factor from Bitbucket and everything started working again.
For my case, this sourcetree specific issue is fixed by changing the ssh client as OpenSSH as I was having the key at C:Usersusername .sshid_rsa
You can change it at Tools -> Options -> General tab -> SSH client configuration
Note: For Putty or Plink, the key should be at C:Usersusername .sshid_rsa.ppk
- delete any existing ssh key (/.ssh/id_rsa).
- ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -C “[email protected]” #generation of new ssh key
Email github wali.
- after ssh key generation.
- eval $(ssh-agent -s) To start ssh agent
- ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa
- clip < ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
paste this into the ssh key section of github.
Now pushing git
git add .
git commit -m “”
git status To check for the files.
git remote add origin “url of the repo” This step only for the first time.
git push -u origin master This is used for the initial push. Otherwise use git push.
If still not working—- go to credential manager then windows credential and delete personel access token of github.
In your Bitbucket.org account, go into Repository menu > User and group access and change the permissions of your user to WRITE or ADMIN. Then try again in your git!
