I have created a personal access token to replace the use of password using git over hhtps. From the help docs I’ve read on the subject, I can’t find straight forward information about how to start using the PAT and replace my current form of authentcaition which is a password. When I perform git operations, I am not being prompted for a password so I guess the windows credential manager is managing the password authentication for me. So what do I need to do to actually make the switch? And what ever I do to make the switch, is this a universal change accross all git accesss, or will I have to do something on a per repo basis. For ssh, you would use ssh-add. But what do you do for a PAT using https?
This article (Creating a personal access token - GitHub Docs) doesn’t tell you this information and it probably should; well apart from clong the repo, but I dont need to clone it because I’m currently working on it!
