Using a private key to connect to a git repo securely with SSH in Bamboo On Demand

Tobias Cohen Sep 25, 2012

I'm trying to set up Bamboo to connect to our GitHub repo more securely, by using an SSH private key instead of a username/password pair, but when I try to save the settings I get the message "'SSH' transport protocol is not supported.".

I've also tried using an https:// url instead of the SSH one, but I then get the message "Authentication type not supported for http(s) protocol.".

What am I doing wrong?

SSH transport is not available on OnDemand. When using http(s), you have to use public repos or password authentication.

This is disappointing, but we were able to get around it by creating a new Github user just for our CI server. Would be nice to see this limitation overcome in a future version.

This is an issue for us - we have suprepo's in Bitbucket that are configured as ssh addresses.

Be aware that HTTPS passwords are logged in plain text(!)
