Get public ssh key of plan/project

I am running a plan, that checks out of a Bitbucket project. The public key of Bamboo gets automatically inserted into that project, so it's all fine. But the problem is that the project (a Node.js project) makes use of an in-house built module, also stored in Bitbucket, and Bamboo does not insert its public key in that project, therefore the plan fails because of access restriction error, when the npm install task cannot succeed pulling that module.

I looked all around the Bamboo server application (SSH-ed on the hosting machine) but could not find any trace of public keys in the bamboo-home folder.

I assume that I have to manually insert the Bamboo public key in that 2nd project, but I don't know where/how to find that key. Any ideas? (suggestions for other approaches are welcome)

Hello Galin,

Bamboo store sshkey into the database and this is the reason for not finding them in the <bamboo-hoome> directory. Also, you cannot use the sshkey generated by Bamboo.

You have to create your own sshkey pair and refer it in the Node.js project. This key must be passphrase less, otherwise Bamboo will wait for someone to type in the password to the ssh key.

Kind regards,
