Bamboo Specs BitbucketServerRepository and SSH Keys

I'm trying to create a build plan using Bamboo Java Specs using the stored specs feature storing the specs in my Bitbucket Server repo (our Bitbucket Server and Bamboo instances are linked correctly). I have got Bamboo picking up the specs file but it fails with this exception:

com.atlassian.bamboo.specs.api.exceptions.PropertiesValidationException: Clone url or ssh key pair is not valid

My plan looks something like this:

new Plan(project(), "name", "key")
.planRepositories(new BitbucketServerRepository()
.oid(new BambooOid(BAMBOOOID))
.repositoryViewer(new BitbucketServerRepositoryViewer())
.server(new ApplicationLink()
.changeDetection(new VcsChangeDetection())

I initially just tried using the public key and private key from an existing build we created in the UI, but it was always a long-shot and didn't work. From reading this page on the API - - it seems like I need to specify these rather than letting Bamboo create its own.

So my question is, do I need to create a user in Bitbucket for Bamboo (using one of our Bitbucket licences) and then generate SSH keys on the Bamboo host as if it were a normal user and use these or am I missing something here?

Update: I've managed to get the repo public SSH key (created by bamboo creating the linked repository), but I'm not sure where the Bamboo private key is

Update 2: created a private SSH key for the account running Bamboo on the box its hosted on. Put that into the spec file along with the public access key for the repo and still getting 

Clone url or ssh key pair is not valid

 Running out of ideas fast
