Hi Jay and welcome to the community!

Pipelines does not currently support line breaks in environment variables and a private SSH key has line breaks. If you want to add a private SSH key as a variable you can base-64 encode it first and then add the base64-encoded private key in the variable. You can find more details about this here:

However, if you use only one SSH key in your pipeline, then instead of using a variable you can set up SSH keys from the Repository settings > SSH keys page of the repo:

Kind regards,

Hi @Jay Khatri 

This error is usually triggered upon missing newline or the opening and closing lines of the private key (the ones which start and end with "----"). Try the following solutions:

  1. Try replacing `- echo "$awskey" | ssh-add -` with `- echo "${awskey}" | ssh-add -` 
  2. Try adding again the private key with all its lines, including "-----BEGIN OPENSSH PRIVATE KEY-----" and "-----END OPENSSH PRIVATE KEY-----"
