Git private key authentication fails with "BEGIN OPENSSH PRIVATE KEY" format

I had troubles setting up a git repository against Gitlab.

The connection test failed with "Cannot decode connection params" while a test checkout provided the following error in the stack trace:

Caused by: unrecognised object: OPENSSH PRIVATE KEY

I found out that i needed to convert my key file to an older format that contains "BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY" instead of the "BEGIN OPENSSH PRIVATE KEY" my key file originally contained.

Since the original key file was created as per Gitlab instruction, and worked in many other scenarios (including a local shell git test with the bamboo user), I wonder if my setup is broken somehow? Please note that I use the official Bamboo docker container.

as workaround you can mount the authentication parameters into docker container :)


Hence you key will work
