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? 

Mikael Sandberg Community Leader May 09, 2019

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.
