How can I change my Git credentials?

Postby spordelia on Wed Jun 15, 2016 7:28 am

For initial Git setup purposes, I "borrowed" the QA manager's user name and password. I believe it was these steps I followed:

http://webhelp.madcapsoftware.com/flare ... =git%20ssh

I did mark the checkbox to save the credentials so that I wouldn't be prompted again. However, I now have my own user name and password, and I can't figure out where to change the saved credentials.

I tried unbinding and re-binding the project to Git, but I was not able to change this information. I can't find any place in source control settings where these keys may be stored. And every push/pull is happening under the QA manager's name.

Any ideas on how to change this?

I heard back from MadCap Support on this issue--I'll post the solution in case anyone encounters this in the future.


If you clear the Flare registry, then you will be able to enter your SSH Public and Private Keys. This should make your branch updates show under your name.
Here are the steps to clearing the Flare registry:
- Close Flare
- Search for "regedit" in the Start menu and select "regedit.exe" (usually the top option)
- Open the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" folder
- Open the "Software" folder
- Open the "MadCap Software" folder and delete the Flare folder
- Relaunch Flare and and when you open your project, it should ask you for your Public and Private Keys.


When you open the project, you have to reset your language, registration, recent projects, etc. But when you attempt to push to Git, you will get this beautiful prompt asking for your credentials!

I had the same problem, but with Perforce.

Instead of deleting the entire Flare folder, I just deleted the "Perforce" sub-folder, that is:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MadCap Software\Flare\Perforce

This seems to have worked fine as well (although, deleting the entire Flare folder might be a safer bet).

Thanks for posting this solution!

This did not work for me - when I went through all the steps, and then opened Flare and the project I had created, and tried to push, I was not asked for my credentials; instead I was stopped at the Certificate Specification page, and I was still unable to authenticate. Did anyone else run into this?

TIA
