Git Basic Authentication Deprecated

(Chris Horikx) #1

I got an email today after authenticating a new GitHub Repo on Squiz Matrix using Basic Authentication AKA username and password. It states:

You recently used a password to access the repository at horikx/visitwaggapartnerpay with git using git/

Basic authentication using a password to Git is deprecated and will soon no longer work. Visit for more information around suggested workarounds and removal dates.

Has there been any talk about how this will be solved?

We have recommended using ssh rather than https for a while -

If you want to continue using https, the token suggested in the article you have linked should work the same as a password.
