Use Netlify large media with access token instead of login credential

Hi, I was helping my collogue to setting up the repo on his machine The repo has setup to use the netlify large media (lfs) but I don’t want to give him the netlify login credential. At first, I thought I can just create an access token for him. He is able to use the access token to run netlify cli “netlify status” to verify he has logged in.

However, when he try to git clone/pull/reset. The git credential manager keep asking him for the login credential.

I was wondering if there is a way to setup the access token so the git credential manger won’t ask for username and password.

Hi, @plin. The other method is to create a personal access token:

Note, this personal access token does have full access to your account. If you share this token with another person, this does grant them full access to your Netlify account.

It is possible that Large Media won’t meet your requirements. If you are considering uninstalling the Large Media add-on (and you can still use Git LFS without using Large Media), please read the following support guide:
