Why don't I see the SSH Key option when logged in to Bitbucket cloud

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Permission denied (publickey)

I'm following section "Your public key isn't loaded into Bitbucket Cloud" of the document but I don't see the SSH key option under account settings. Do I need special privileges to be able to see my ssh keys?

Hello @Ross Aribi,

I think the problem might be that you're clicking on the Atlassian account link and not the Bitbucket settings.

To access your SSH key on Bitbucket:

  1. Click your avatar>Bitbucket settings.

2. Click SSH keys they should be the first entry in the Security section.

3. Click Edit (the pencil icon) to view an existing key or click Add key to add a new key.

That worked, thanks Dan! My mistake smile

No worries. I've updated the Knowledge base article as well, so thank you for pointing that out to us.
