Typo in documentation on setting up ssh

In the bitbucket documentation, after setting up ssh keys, it says, to ssh url is:


When using this, I would get a response from the bitbucket server of:

conq: invalid repository name

Looking on this site for some guidance, the responses have always been, refer to the troubleshooting ssh issues.  This is, in fact, not an ssh issue.  It is a documentation issue on the syntax of a URL.  

The URL syntax on the page "Configuring multiple SSH identities" in the section "Create SSH config file" in the table that shows git syntax the URL should be:


In other words, replace the 'colon' with a 'forward slash'.

I hope this helps improve your product.

I am a bit confused here as to where the typo is.  Looking at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BITBUCKET/Set+up+SSH+for+Git, it shows an example for configuring your git config file as:

[remote "origin"]
    fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
    url = git@bitbucket.org:emmap1/bitbucketspacestation.git

The url being:


This is correct syntax for using SSH with Bitbucket.  What client/OS are you using?
