How to allow access for Bamboo on submodule private git repos?


we store our repos at Bitbucket and they are interconnected as git submodules.

I've set up a git checkout with submodules, but it fails checking out private submodules:

Cloning into 'xxxxx/yyyyyyy'...
14-Mar-2014 15:15:35 	Warning: Permanently added ',' (RSA) to the list of known hosts.
14-Mar-2014 15:15:35 	Permission denied (publickey).
14-Mar-2014 15:15:35 	fatal: Could not read from remote repository.
14-Mar-2014 15:15:35 	Please make sure you have the correct access rights
14-Mar-2014 15:15:35 	and the repository exists.

How can I allow the bamboo user to access these repos as well?

Hi V,

Thanks for the example. Bamboo OnDemand does not currently support SSH transport for Git repos in OnDemand as mentioned in

Please vote and watch on the issue as it has been recognised as a necessary feature by the product managers :)
