In git bash for windows, the username and/or password is asked in a separate UI popup prompt like below.
On Hitting Cancel you get the below shell based prompt, where the same username can be input.
Is there a way I can disable these prompts?
I still do want to enter my username and password however instead of the UI based prompt, i want to enter it through the shell based prompt.
Using suggestions from this does not help. How to undo git config --system core.askpass git-gui--askpass
Try to blank the variable
core.askPass globally (in your config-file)
$ git config --global core.askPass ""
or use the
-c switch to override it just for one command
$ git -c core.askPass="" clone <https_url>
Note: un-setting the
core.askPass by using
git config --global --unset core.askPass doesn't help. It needs to be set to an empty string like above.
