I normally use TortoiseGit for GitHub access (using Windows10). Today, after getting messages about passwords no longer being accepted, I created a wincred PAT, cleared the saved authentication data cache from TortoiseGit, then tried to do a push. But GitHub complains that git is still trying to send a password. I’m not really familiar with the git command line commands. I’ve been reading the docs for quite a while now, but not getting anywhere. I installed the latest git version. My global .gitconfig file has these entries:
helper = wincred
username = eygilbert
Can someone help me get git to start using the PAT instead of a password? Thanks.
