git push never asks for password

Issue #7493 resolved

created an issue

just trying to get started with using bitbucket. I have a local repo that i'm trying to push up to bitbucket but when I issues git push -u origin --all it never queries me for a password.

I'm doing this from a fedora 18 system.

    I had a look around and none of your repositories have any commits nor are any push events recorded, so its hard for me to work out how the authentication is being bypassed.

    Could you tell what url you are using to push to Bitbucket using git config --get remote.origin.url? Also could you copy and paste the output of the git push command?

    Cheers, Brian

    I'm having the same issue as well. I can push even after logging out explicitly by pressing log out of Bitbucket, and then waiting ten minutes before returning to the console. This is super eerie. I'd expect to be asked for an SSH key, or a password, or something. I could be away from my computer ten minutes and push a change up?

    I spun up a new cloud instance to see if I could still access it from that and I'm denied. I think it would be time to put out some documentation or something on the subject. There are a few tickets with people concerned how this works (and the concerns are echoed not only from Windows users, but also Linux and macOS users)

    I'm pretty lost. The only SSH key I've added requires a password and is a deploy key that should be read-only not letting me write to master.

    same here, I was prompted once, entered my password but push did not occur (password typo?); now I never get prompted and push is still ineffective:

    repository access denied. deployment key is not associated with the requested repository. fatal: Could not read from remote repository.
