Bamboo plan spec ssh key configration

Ibrahim Buamod July 23, 2023

I having an issue in configuration the ssh keys
as this post but the solution didn't work with me

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Cannot read keypair, passphrase wasn't set
java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Cannot read keypair, passphrase wasn't set

Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The supplied key is not in a supported format or needs a passphrase to be decrypted

my workflow:

I clone a yaml file and modify it to work for another project, I didn't find a proper way on how to handle the ssh keys 

- repo-name:
type: bitbucket-server
server: Stash
project: project
slug: repo-name
clone-url: ssh://
public-key: ssh rsa generated key (imported to the project ssh key )
private-key: encrypted private key

I read that the passphrase is only for git repos

Hello @Ibrahim Buamod

The SSH public key portion of your key needs to be added to your repository settings on your Bitbucket server, while the SSH private key needs to be encrypted before being added to the YAML specs file.

To encrypt a string, run it through Bamboo's Specs Encryption tool.

The SSH private key can't be password protected.

Thank you,
