Trouble with SSH and Bitbucket Pipelines

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

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.
