Working with RStudio desktop 1.1.383 on Windows 10. I can pull and push fine as long as LFS files are not involved, but I get an error when pushing some files that are tracked by LFS:
$ git push Git LFS: (0 of 5 files) 0 B / 642.00 KB batch response: Git credentials for REPOSITORY_URL not found: exec: "rpostback-askpass": executable file not found in %PATH% error: failed to push some refs to 'REPOSITORY_URL'
(I’ve replaced the actual URL with “REPOSITORY_URL” here).
I get this error both when I click the “Push” button in the IDE and when I type
git push on the terminal window in RStudio.
However, if I open a git bash window from Windows Explorer and type
git push, I get success:
$ git push Git LFS: (5 of 5 files) 642.00 KB / 642.00 KB Counting objects: 14, done. Delta compression using up to 4 threads. Compressing objects: 100% (14/14), done.

I checked in RStudio global options and the git executable is pointing to the correct one (C:/Program Files/git/bin/git.exe). I am connecting to a private gitlab-ce server that I operate, using an
I have git 2.14.2.windows.1 installed (from git-scm.com). This is a new error, and that I have not previously encountered using git-lfs with RStudio on this machine.
I would be grateful if anyone has pointers on how to fix this problem. In the meantime, there is an easy workaround in just opening up a bash window from outside RStudio when I need to pull or push LFS files.
