Added SSH key but still ask for password




I have added the ssh successfully as per the instructions and got this message 

ssh -T
logged in as myusername.

You can use git or hg to connect to Bitbucket. Shell access is disabled.

But when I use the git pull command, still asks me for a password.
How to solve this problem?

Hi Moby,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

Did you also change the remote URL for your repository to use SSH instead of HTTP/HTTPS?

You can use the command git remote set-url to change it.

Thanks for answer  but I'm not sure which url to set?

You can check the URL used for your repository by running git remote -v, this will list the remote URLs:

$ git remote -v (fetch) (push)

If the URL looks like in the above example then you are not using SSH. Also note that if you have a passphrase for your SSH Key, you will be asked to enter that every time.

great! this really helped! <3

For someone who is still looking for a solution, this is how you set the remote URL with ssh

git remote set-url origin<repo_name>/<repo_name>.git
