Building Node.js module with private git repo dependencies

I have a build set up for a Node.js module that has a step which executes 'npm install'. The package.json file, which specifies the module's dependencies includes at least one private git repo:

+    "module-name": "git+ssh://git@github.mycompany.com:OurOrgName/module-name.git#v0.0.1",

This is a standard practice in Node.js. You can see the docs for doing so here: https://npmjs.org/doc/json.html (search for "git+ssh").

We're using a deploy key to clone our repo from github initially, which works fine. The next step is our npm install step, which itself attempts to git clone the private repos similar to what's shown above. These fail with an authentication error. Since deploy keys are 1:1 between Bamboo and a repo, it doesn't seem to make sense to use them in this scenario.

How should I be setting up my Node.js project so that it can run npm install and git clone any private repos that I have specified in its package.json file?

Thanks,

Matt
