How can I add an SSH key to a users' account without the browser?

I want to automate the process of setting up new developers with all the functionality they need.

We require SSH for our Bitbucket pushing & pulling.

We have single sign on setup so we login to Bitbucket with the same credentials that we use to log into our laptops.

I am hoping it will be very straightforward to have the workstation setup scripts include a line or two to generate the SSH key then get it to bit bucket somehow.

There are REST API endpoints to manage SSH keys which you should be able to incorporate in your scripts. The documentation is at https://developer.atlassian.com/static/rest/bitbucket-server/4.10.1/bitbucket-ssh-rest.html#idp31840

For example, a POST to /rest/ssh/1.0/keys can be used to add an SSH key to a user.
