• Aug 01, 2015 BitBucket - Set up SSH key pair for Git. This short video shows how you can create a public/private SSH key pair and register your public key with BitBucket. (Bitbucket) + SourceTree GUI.
  • Create and add your SSH key pair. It is best practice to use Git over SSH instead of Git over HTTP. In order to use SSH, you will need to: Create an SSH key pair; Add your SSH public key to GitLab. Creating your SSH key pair. Go to your command line. Follow the instructions to generate your SSH key pair. Adding your SSH public key to GitLab.

Before you continue, make sure to sign in.

Once you login, you will see a list of all users (which will initially be empty). In the upper right corner click on the user plus button (Fig-1).

Mar 14, 2017 Setting up SSH keys for multiple Bitbucket/Github accounts. First generate a key to the default /.ssh/idrsa. F 'companyName' ssh-add /.ssh/companyName. That takes care of generating the. Oct 23, 2018 -BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY- The work around is to specify the format to the old PEM when generating the keys: ssh-keygen -m PEM -t rsa -b 4096. The new format isn't currently compatible in the Access keys of a Bitbucket repository. When I tried to connect to a repository using a key pair generated with. Ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096.

Configure New User



Refer to Fig-2:1. Username is required and must be unique.

  1. SSH Key Details is used to login to SFTP Gateway instead of a password.
    Select one of these options for the user * The 'Generate new SSH keys pair' option will generate a new key pair, write the public key to the authorized_keys file, and download the private key once the user is saved.

    Note: You will need to make the private key available to the user by email or any other secure way (learn more).

  • The 'Upload user-provided SSH key' option will display a browse button that will allow you to navigate to a public key file to be uploaded and written to the user's authorized_keys file.
  1. S3 Encryption Level is used to encrypt object uploaded to S3 by the user.
    Here are all your options: * SSE-S3: Is used by default. There is no additional cost, performance impact, nor key management overhead. You basically get some security compliance with no drawbacks. * KMS: You use the AWS key-managed service for encryption. This is similar to SSE-S3, but requires some configuration on your part. If you are not seeing the KMS keys you created, click the refresh button next to the dropdown. * No server side encryption: This is a good option if your S3 bucket is open to the public. Otherwise, it's best to take advantage of SSE-S3.

  2. Enable Shared Directory is used to allow multiple SFTP Gateway users to access the same set of files. This will create a folder in the default S3 bucket (even if the user has a custom bucket configured) called /shared.
    Any files created in this S3 location will get synced down to this Linux filesystem location: /home/username/home/username/shared/

  3. Enable Download Directory is used to allow this user to see what is on S3 through the use of Download Folders.
    By default, this will create a folder in your S3 bucket: /downloads. Any files created in this S3 location will get synced down to this Linux filesystem location:

  4. Upload Destination S3 Bucket Name is used to specify the custom S3 bucket name for this user.

Note: This will create a new bucket or point to an existing bucket that you own.

  1. Upload Destination Prefix is used to specify the S3 path to use for this user.

Note: The user's files will be uploaded to s3://my-custom-bucket/my/custom/path/.


On Windows, you can create SSH keys in many ways. This document explains how to use two SSH applications, PuTTY and Git Bash.

Joyent recommends RSA keys because the node-manta CLI programs work with RSA keys both locally and with the ssh agent. DSA keys will work only if the private key is on the same system as the CLI, and not password-protected.


PuTTY is an SSH client for Windows. You can use PuTTY to generate SSH keys. PuTTY is a free open-source terminal emulator that functions much like the Terminal application in macOS in a Windows environment. This section shows you how to manually generate and upload an SSH key when working with PuTTY in the Windows environment.

About PuTTY

PuTTY is an SSH client for Windows that you will use to generate your SSH keys. You can download PuTTY from www.chiark.greenend.org.uk.

When you install the PuTTY client, you also install the PuTTYgen utility. PuTTYgen is what you will use to generate your SSH key for a Windows VM.

This page gives you basic information about using PuTTY and PuTTYgen to log in to your provisioned machine. For more information on PuTTY, see the PuTTY documentation

Generating an SSH key

To generate an SSH key with PuTTYgen, follow these steps:

  1. Open the PuTTYgen program.
  2. For Type of key to generate, select SSH-2 RSA.
  3. Click the Generate button.
  4. Move your mouse in the area below the progress bar. When the progress bar is full, PuTTYgen generates your key pair.
  5. Type a passphrase in the Key passphrase field. Type the same passphrase in the Confirm passphrase field. You can use a key without a passphrase, but this is not recommended.
  6. Click the Save private key button to save the private key. You must save the private key. You will need it to connect to your machine.
  7. Right-click in the text field labeled Public key for pasting into OpenSSH authorized_keys file and choose Select All.
  8. Right-click again in the same text field and choose Copy.

Importing your SSH key

Now you must import the copied SSH key to the portal.

  1. After you copy the SSH key to the clipboard, return to your account page.
  2. Choose to Import Public Key and paste your SSH key into the Public Key field.
  3. In the Key Name field, provide a name for the key. Note: although providing a key name is optional, it is a best practice for ease of managing multiple SSH keys.
  4. Add the key. It will now appear in your table of keys under SSH.

PuTTY and OpenSSH use different formats of public SSH keys. If the text you pasted in the SSH Key starts with —— BEGIN SSH2 PUBLIC KEY, it is in the wrong format. Be sure to follow the instructions carefully. Your key should start with ssh-rsa AAAA….

Once you upload your SSH key to the portal, you can connect to your virtual machine from Windows through a PuTTY session.

Git Bash

The Git installation package comes with SSH. Using Git Bash, which is the Git command line tool, you can generate SSH key pairs. Git Bash has an SSH client that enables you to connect to and interact with Triton containers on Windows.

To install Git:

  1. (Download and initiate the Git installer](https://git-scm.com/download/win).
  2. When prompted, accept the default components by clicking Next.
  3. Choose the default text editor. If you have Notepad++ installed, select Notepad++ and click Next.
  4. Select to Use Git from the Windows Command Prompt and click Next.
  5. Select to Use OpenSSL library and click Next.
  6. Select to Checkout Windows-style, commit Unix-style line endings and click Next.
  7. Select to Use MinTTY (The default terminal of mYSYS2) and click Next.
  8. Accept the default extra option configuration by clicking Install.

When the installation completes, you may need to restart Windows.

Launching GitBash

To open Git Bash, we recommend launching the application from the Windows command prompt:

  1. In Windows, press Start+R to launch the Run dialog.
  2. Type C:Program FilesGitbinbash.exe and press Enter.

Generating SSH keys

First, create the SSH directory and then generate the SSH key pair.

One assumption is that the Windows profile you are using is set up with administrative privileges. Given this, you will be creating the SSH directory at the root of your profile, for example:

  1. At the Git Bash command line, change into your root directory and type.
  1. Change into the .ssh directory C:Usersjoetest.ssh

  2. To create the keys, type:
  1. When prompted for a password, type apassword to complete the process. When finished, the output looks similar to:

Uploading an SSH key

To upload the public SSH key to your Triton account:

  1. Open Triton Service portal, select Account to open the Account Summary page.
  2. From the SSH section, select Import Public Key.
  3. Enter a Key Name. Although naming a key is optional, labels are a best practice for managing multiple SSH keys.
  4. Add your public SSH key.

When Triton finishes the adding or uploading process, the public SSH key appears in the list of SSH keys.
