Trouble with SSH and Bitbucket Pipelines

Hi, I'm trying to setup SSH access from bamboo to bitbucket.

Created an SSH key, uploaded public key to bitbucket and private key to bamboo as a shared credential.

When selecting shared credentials on repository in bamboo, error is shown:

Running bamboo 6.1.0.

Any help would be much appreciated...

You can choose SSH shared credentials on same screen below to be used for regular checkout operations.
