I'm trying to use SourceTree for a class that I'm teaching. In order to do that we need to install SourceTree onto the school's Windows computers.

When we try to install SourceTree (Version it demands an Atlassian account before it will start. Obviously this is wrong - since we're trying to install SourceTree onto a shared computer (into a VM, to be specific) we don't have just one account (and, on top of that, we're using SourceTree with GitLab, not BitBucket/Atlassian, so we don't need their account anyways).

Is it possible to install SourceTree but skip the 'create an Atlassian account' step during the install process?

(We'd be ok with having the students create accounts later on, when they first start using it - we just don't want all the students to share a single BitBucket account by default)

I don't think SourceTree allows to install without using an Atlassian Account. I've also tried and couldn't make it.

Have a look at Github Desktop, I think it allows not to configure an account

(I also prefer the UI from what I've seen - CLI still rules)

Edit: keep in mind that's easier for the students to google by themselves solutions to problems with git using the CLI than using UI apps

Install SourceTree without an Atlassian account?, I don't think SourceTree allows to install without using an Atlassian Account. I've also tried and couldn't make it. Have a look at Github Desktop,  Welcome to the Atlassian Community. The Atlassian ID option was removed as of release 3.0.8, so the only way to install it using an Atlassian ID is to download an older version of Sourcetree, register it and then you can upgrade to the latest version.

Yes it is quite possible.

  1. Uninstall the standard sourcetree version before step 2
  2. Use Sourcetree for Windows Enterprise version with this json hack (thanks @wow qing 's comment)
  3. Create a file %LocalAppData%\Atlassian\SourceTree\accounts.json and put the following data in it:

{ "$id": "1", "$type": "SourceTree.Api.Host.Identity.Model.IdentityAccount, SourceTree.Api.Host.Identity", "Authenticate": true, "HostInstance": { "$id": "2", "$type": "SourceTree.Host.Atlassianaccount.AtlassianAccountInstance, SourceTree.Host.AtlassianAccount", "Host": { "$id": "3", "$type": "SourceTree.Host.Atlassianaccount.AtlassianAccountHost, SourceTree.Host.AtlassianAccount", "Id": "atlassian account" }, "BaseUrl": "" }, "Credentials": { "$id": "4", "$type": "SourceTree.Model.BasicAuthCredentials, SourceTree.Api.Account", "Username": "", "Email": null }, "IsDefault": false }

  1. Manually call it from e.g. C:\Program Files\Attlassian\SourceTree\Sourcetree.exe (because in my case there was no shortcut created.)

updated , it works with 3.1.2 version
