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)


I figured it out after just trying this out of desperation ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Same here, working! Tks

Thanks it works for me.

First, remove the key from that repository.

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

I did what you said, but, I am still getting the same error. :(

The same here
