Upload SSH personal and SSH access keys in Bitbucket Server using REST API endpoints

How to add an SSH key

To upload an SSH access key for a project, the REST API endpoint to use is:

POST /rest/keys/1.0/projects/{projectKey}/ssh

With a payload similar to the following payload:

    "key": {
        "text": "ssh-rsa AAAAB3... me@"
    "permission": "PROJECT_READ"


To add an SSH access key to a repository, we can use:

POST /rest/keys/1.0/projects/{projectKey}/repos/{repositorySlug}/ssh

And this payload:

    "key": {
        "text": "ssh-rsa AAAAB3... me@"
    "permission": "REPO_WRITE"


And finally to add an SSH personal key for a user, this is the command:

POST /rest/ssh/1.0/keys?user=username

With a payload similar to:

    "text": "ssh-rsa AAAAB3... me@"


One full example

When using curl, the full command to add an SSH access key on a project looks like this:

curl --user <user>:<password> -H "Content-Type: application/json" --data @input.json -X POST <Bitbucket URL>/rest/keys/1.0/projects/{projectKey}/repos/{repositorySlug}/ssh
