I have a problem where eclipse asks for a password after clicking commit and push during lab 3 and no matter the password, it doesn't work. I even tried changing my github password. I was wondering if anyone else ran into this issue.

I had that same issue, it turns out the "password" is the personal token you generated on GitHub, and the user is your GitHub username.

Once the window that shows the login, click the 'Enter code' button, and you should be able to just paste in your code.


I tried my personal token and password too. Neither worked for me.

The password you're supposed to use is the git token instead of your personal git hub password.
