Bitbucket Git Submodules with SSH Keys and valid permissions are NOT cloning

I have a valid id_rsa.pub ssh-key copied into my Bitbucket user settings. I can clone any top-level repo that I have access to.

I can also validate that my id_rsa.pub works by running:

ssh -vT git@bitbucket.org
[...]
Authenticated to bitbucket.org ([104.192.143.2]:22).
debug1: channel 0: new [client-session]
debug1: Entering interactive session.
debug1: pledge: network
debug1: client_input_channel_req: channel 0 rtype exit-status reply 0
logged in as **REDACTED**.

BUT when I clone a top-level repo with submodules and run:

git submodule update --init --recursive"

# I see many "Permission denied (publickey") messages to repos I also have permission to

Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

I can clone my submodules over ssh individually, NO PROBLEM. Just when the top level repo attempts to update all the submodules, it fails. 

What is going on?

(((  I do not want to use https for submodules. )))

Hi Bartosz! Are you still experiencing this issue? If you are, please give us more info so we can continue helping you:

- Are you using Bitbucket Server or Cloud?

- Where are you cloning the repositories from? Where are you cloning them to?

Best regards,

Ana

I'm not the reporter but I have this issue. I'm using bitbucket cloud and cloning repositories to the my local e: drive. 

git version 2.16.2.windows.1

cmd line: git clone --recurse-submodules git@bitbucket.org:orgname/reponame.git

Solved it, if anyone else comes looking make sure your ssh key does not have a passphrase.

Like Alexander_007 likes this

Surely having a passphrase on an ssh key is considered best practice. 

I don't think this is the genuine root cause of this issue. 

I am also facing the same issue and I do not have any passphrase for my ssh key.
