Description Peter Kornfeld 2015-02-23 12:24:51 UTC
Description of Problem:
After setting up a connection to some GitHub repository, Xamarin Studio asked for password upon first access...I gave the wrong password and ever since Xamarin Studio fails to connect to GitHub as it still try the wrong password...There is no option to force Xamarin Studio to ask for new credentials...

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Set up a registered repository, with URL and username...
2. Push changes to the repository
3. When asked for password type in a wrong one...


Actual Results:
Xamarin Studio stores the wrong password (even it failed to connect with it) and reuse it every time...

Expected Results:
After failure I would expect Xamarin Studio to ask for password again...

How often does this happen? 
On every push attempt..

I can confirm that I can face this issue. I used https git rep url and then entered the wrong password.

Peter Kornfeld,

XS stores the password in keychain, so you would need to go there and delete the password entry.

Hey @Shruti, can you check with the latest master?
Comment 6 Parmendra Kumar 2015-05-19 15:28:55 UTC
@Marius 

I have checked this issue with windows as well as on mac with XS build i.e. 6.0.0.669 and observed that when I have push the changes and enter wrong password Xamarin Studio ask for password again.

Screencast: http://www.screencast.com/t/AvrK8ly6bdv

Hence closing this issue.
