How can I use a SSH key in Bitbucket Pipelines? Edited

I want to deploy to a server using bitbucket pipelines + python fabfile.

I followed the steps here: but couldn't get it to work

Initially I thought I could just do `fab -H user@ --show=running deploy_all_the_things` as the guide said I didn't have to reference the SSH key, but that didn't work.

After some playing around I managed to make it work by using the file path specified in `~/.ssh/config` which for me was `/opt/atlassian/pipelines/agent/data/id_rsa`.



fab -H user@ -i /opt/atlassian/pipelines/agent/data/id_rsa --show=running deploy_all_the_things


I feel as though the above is a bit of a hack and will break in future updates to bitbucket pipelines. What's the recommended way of doing this?

I am doing the same think and also thinks this is a bit of a hack.
