How to clone bitbucket repo during pipelines run Edited

So following


I am having issues. I have generated SSH key from the pipelines settings in the bitbucket settings for my pipeline repo, and added the pub key to the other repo I want to clone.


I then have my first step as:

- git clone


And I am getting:

+ git clone
Cloning into 'repo'...
Host key verification failed.
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.


Even though the docs say "Note that Bitbucket Pipelines automatically adds the fingerprint for the Bitbucket and GitHub sites to all pipelines" I still tried to add it to the known hosts in the pipelines settings. Even then, I still got the same error.


What do I need to do to get this working?

Hey, that seems strange.

Could you cat your known_host file by adding the following to your scripts?

cat ~/.ssh/known_hosts

Or if you raise a support ticket, we could help you further.

Was this ever resolved? I have the same issue.
