Pipeline Git-Ftp unable to open public key file

I setup SSH keys in Settings/Pipelines/SSH keys.

With that key pair, I can ssh, or SFTP to my target server using the SSH key from my pipelines without any problem.

But when I use git-ftp :

git ftp push -vv --branch test -u deploy sftp://my.server.org/target/path/

I have the following response :

Wed May 24 08:30:30 UTC 2017: Host is 'test.maforet.fr'.
Wed May 24 08:30:30 UTC 2017: User is 'deploy'.

Should I specify the public key file with --pubkey ? If yes, where is located the public key file (I know where is the private key) ?

Thanks for your help.

Hello try to encode your private key   base64 and use it as a environnement variable

take a look on section Use multiple SSH keys in your pipeline
