I have setup a private Bitbucket repo which can be accessed fine by the Jenkins Git-Plugin. When I switch the repo to require authentication Jenkins complains with
stderr: fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://bitbucket/scm/test/test.git'
I have provided credentials in the plugin which have enough permissions to access the repo. I also can test this successfully on the command line on the jenkins server.
Repository Url in Jenkins: https://bitbucket/scm/test/test.git
If I add the credentials directly in the repository url, then the authentication works fine.
I currently don't understand how credentials are passed in the jenkins plugin so maybe there is something wrong with the gitconfig? Here is mine
[credential] helper = store [core] editor = nano.exe askpass = false
Any suggestion how to configure git and jenkins so that I can use user authentication (username and password) via https?
