I was using Egit in Eclipse well enough for a while. My git server is tied to our enterprise logins, and I had to reset my password for expiry rules. I was able to log back into our git server's web site, but git commands from EGit are now failing with "not authorized". I'm guessing I have to get Egit to let me enter the new password, but I don't see how to make that happen. I even tried running "git status" from the command line, and that didn't prompt me for a password at all. I'm not sure what's going on here.

I was able to do a "git pull" from the command line, and it did prompt me for a password, and I was able to authenticate. It still fails from Eclipse. I just checked with another colleague, and he gets the same error. Ironically, it doesn't bother me that much because he gave up trying to use EGit a long time ago, and just does everything he can from the command line.

Someone pointed out to me that if I open up the git repo view and navigate into "Remotes"->"origin" I will find two entries there, one for upstream and one for downstream. Right-click on each of those and select "Change Credentials". Do this for every repo pointing to the same server.

I'm glad there's a way to fix this, but is it possible to make this harder? I can't imagine how. I'm going to have to do this every 30 days.

The password is stored once per server so there should be no need to repeat this per repository hosted on the same server. And yes, this is ugly, patches welcome Smile
