repository access denied

Hello everyone,

I have very strange situation. I am on Ubuntu, My Bitbucket user is a member of 2 different teams each having a project with repository.

My user definitely has SSH key connected to account and in all repositories I am an admin.

I have no problems cloning, pushing and etc from repository in 1 project via SSH. But I get this message when I try to clone repositories from another project:

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

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


HTTPS cloning works ok so not an access rights problem.

What could go wrong? 

PS: yesterday it worked like a charm, stopped working today.

Hi Serhii,

Are your SSH keys also configured in the other other project?

SSH keys are configured for User account, not projects!
