You can test immediately if your key is loaded properly by doing the following:

ssh -Tv

If this fails, then you'll need to double check your settings as noted in our documentation:

  • Add the key in Bitbucket
  • Add the key in your ~/.ssh/config file like
 IdentityFile ~/.ssh/my_key_rsa

  • You've updated the remote to point to Bitbucket
git remote add bitbucket{username}/{repo name}.git

Finally, if this still isn't working for you. Check out our troubleshooting guide.

I tried to clone my repo...It works fine. I have push the file using git push <URL> command. I cannt use repo reference name. Why?

You need to update your remotes.

git remote -v
git remote rm origin
git remote add origin{username}/{repo slug}.git


I did git remote add https://{username}{username}/{repo slug}.git.

I tried with git remote add{username}/{repo slug}.git and it returns error like Permission denied (publickey), Could not read from remote repo.

I left off the 'origin' specification in my example. Try that again.
