Reset Git Credential on OS X Keychain

| Comments

This post basically just a note for my self. In case I got the same condition in the next, it can help me to remember what I did in the past.

I got a condition which I have just changed my git password. Surely I cannot pull or push since my local credential was not valid anymore. When I run git config –list, I believe my git password stored on OS X Keychain. The simple way I do was running a command via terminal :

$ git config credential.helper osxkeychain

I was then prompted to input my username and password. By inputing my username and new password everything back to normal.

If you want it to apply globally just append parameter –global to the command.

$ git config --global credential.helper osxkeychain
