I have a Stash repository and stash is setup to use https and ssh. It has the site keys and I have registered my ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub. Using the web site works but do you have specific instructions for the steps to use git to communicate with the stash repository using either ssh:// or https:// without entering a password?
I am able to git clone but it always requires my password.
You can use SourceTree client by Atlassian, it has option to save password for a repository.
Tools-> Option -> Authentication
You need to add your public ssh key in the stash repository. Password will not be require if key is published.
Trick: one way to update config file. But it is not recommended as it has security risk and password is visible when you push in git bash/gui in push statement.
$ vi <repo>/.git/config
url = http://username:password@stashurl/scm/<key>/repo.git '<---- update your password here
fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
However Atlassian provide documentation:
I do have my id_rsa.pub registered on the server. You're right, cloning with the servers recommended ssh://git@... url works.
I will take a look at the documentation, but I am still unable to get 'git clone https://username@server...' to work without entering my password. Is that possible?
When I clone using ssh://git@servername will it have the correct user when I push?
If ssh is published/added to the repository and key is correct it will not ask for the password.
Repository --> settings -> Access Keys -> Add key
https requires Basic authentication (userID and Password). Atlassian only provided solution to store the password to get rid of this as mentioned in the https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/STASH/Permanently+authenticating+with+Git+repositories
I would recommend you to use SourceTree to avoid the problem (if you store password in SourceTree)
Thank you for your question.
