Github Support for password authentication was removed

Please use a personal access token instead.

Github Support for password authentication was removed – In this article I want to share a tutorial on how to solve git errors when we want to retrieve files from github. Here is the error:

neon@neon:~/Documents/KERJA/FAHMI$ git clone https://github.com/Testing/myproject.git
Cloning into 'myproject'...
Username for 'https://github.com': whyme31
Password for 'https://whyme31@github.com': 
remote: Support for password authentication was removed on August 13, 2021. Please use a personal access token instead.
remote: Please see https://github.blog/2020-12-15-token-authentication-requirements-for-git-operations/ for more information.
fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://github.com/Testing/myproject.git/'

This is because we can no longer use the existing link addresses in general. By default the command we use is:

git clone https://github.com/Testing/myproject.git

But that method can no longer be used!

The newest way is to include a token.

Here is the format:

git clone https://<your_token>@github.com/Testing/myproject.git

 

How to Activate Github Token

To be able to activate the github token, follow this method:

  • Login to your github account
  • Select the Settings menu -> Developer Settings

  • Then click Personal access tokens
  • Then click Generate new token
  • Fill in the Note form with information
  • Check Repo
  • Click Generate token.

  • You will get a token code.
  • For example the tokens I get:

ghp_FCdJGH4HJSphPEowaGR6WaTonj95Gk3Nn0zZ

If you want to clone

  • Next enter the token into the command like:
git clone https://ghp_FCdJGH4HJSphPEowaGR6WaTonj95Gk3Nn0zZ@github.com/Testing/myproject.git
  • If true, then you will get an error like this:
neon@neon:~/Documents/KERJA/FAHMI$ git clone https://ghp_FCdJGH4HJSphPEowaGR6WaTonj95Gk3Nn0zZ@github.com/Testing/myproject.git
Cloning into 'myproject'...

If you want to update Token in VSCode

For example, previously you had registered a GitHub token in your vscode, but suddenly the expiration period was active, so you couldn’t push the code to GitHub. Therefore, to fix it, you have to update the token with the following example:

git remote set-url origin https://ghp_FCdJGH4HJSphPEowaGR6WaTonj95Gk3Nn0zZ@github.com/Testing/myproject.git

then push your code:

git push origin master
