Migrate to BitBucket cloud from local repo fails

New to Git and Bitbucket so I may be missing something stupid.

I have  a local repo on my Mac.  Everything works fine from SourceTree, and git command line.


When I try to follow the tutorial for migrating a local repo to BitBucket cloud from SourceTree, a new empty repo will show in my cloud account, but I get following  error messages int the output window. Permission denied (publickey).

fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights

and the repository exists.


Any Idea what I am missing?

Hi @Ken Turcotte

Sorry for the delayed answer.

With the provided information it looks like you are missing the ssh key configuration.
Take a look at this page
It will provide some guidance on how to set up the ssh key.

Please feel free to reach out if you tried that before or I misunderstood your question.
