Unable to push code to my private repo

I set up ssh keys after reading the instructions from the confluence.  I am still getting the following error:

repository access denied. access via a deployment key is read-only.
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

I am able to push my code properly to Github. Don't really know where I am going wrong.

I am trying to push to my private repo.

 

The command ssh -T git@bitbucket.org gives the following output:

authenticated via a deploy key.


You can use git or hg to connect to Bitbucket. Shell access is disabled.

This deploy key has read access to the following repositories:

myName/repoName: xxxxxx -- my_email_address

Same troubles here. I followed all the steps from the main page after creating the repo. I even created a new ssh key just for bitbucket and added it to the repo's access keys. no dice.

Fixed it!

 

  1. Remove the SSH key from the repo. (Click on repo name > Settings > Access Keys)
  2. Add SSH key to Account settings SSH keys. (Click on your avatar > Bitbucket Settings > SSH Keys)

Thanks for this solution. They should remove the possiblity to add keys in a repo.

That's there for CI/CD systems to connect. It isn't going away any time soon.

So, we need to add ssh key to personal account, instead of repository.

Unbelievable.


I think this docs is useless now, https://support.atlassian.com/bitbucket-cloud/docs/add-access-keys

I got here after solving the issue myself. I was about to revert to https and needed to add password for that then i saw option to add ssh. I hadn't realised I was adding a depolyment ssh for read only.

Atlassian can you make this clearer?

The current (which I and many others failed to read and isn't particularly clear anyway):

"Use access keys to gain read-only access to this repository. Learn more about using SSH keys."

could be replace with 

"Use access keys to gain READ-ONLY access to this repository FOR READ WRITE add in your personal settings. Learn more about using SSH keys."

 

Or better still a popup that warns you when you add a key. 

 

Backtracking I see it was those instructions above that sent me on this route, again these could be much clearer. 

 

I see clickup have github integration. if it were up to...

First, remove the key from that repository.

Next, add the key to your own account - there's an option in your Bitbucket settings.

Thanks for this answer! It saved me. It's a bit confusing how this account-wide setting is hidden away, but it seems pretty easy to add/remove SSH keys for a repository... even though it doesn't really do much.

IMPORTANT: I found it quite hard to find my account settings, the interface may have changed since the original comment.
INSTRUCTIONS: Click on the settings 'cog wheel' next to your 'avatar' (my initials in my case) and choose Personal Bitbucket Settings. It's there you will find Security -> SSH keys.

I am facing the same problem. Via ssh I cannot push back to the repository. If I try it via https it works. I am accessing the repository in our CI/CD scenario and thus I cannot use https access as it asks for the password each time, when I remember correctly.

I need the deployment access key on the repo itself, otherwise our Jenkins job isn't able to access the repo at all - moving that key to the profile settings doesn't help me.

The message I get is

repository access denied.
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

Please help.
