I think you need to talk to the people providing your repository.  This is not a Fisheye issue - you've got the key, you can't upload it to git.corp, so you need help from them.

Hi Nic, thanks for the help. I just want to know if I will be uploading key file what extension should I use, I mean if I copy the generated key to text file and try to upload will it succeed or I should change the extension.

I have few questions regarding fish-eye 1.Whenever I create key pair from fish-eye the public key stored for particular user or jira admin? 2.Where is the location of private key/public key...can we have access to it ?

why we need git executable configured with fisheye while deploying keys on repository server as well as checking connection?

Hi Rahul,

You can either generate the ssh key pair in FishEye and copy the public key into your Git repository server, or generate the ssh key in the Git repository server and upload the private key into FishEye. If you choose the second option, please note that FishEye can only use passphrase-less SSH keys:


According to your comment, you're generating the ssh key pair in FishEye and trying to upload it into your Git repository server. 

Public hosting systems such as Bitbucket and GitHub provide simple web-based mechanisms for associating public keys with your account. For these systems, a generic username is used in the repository URL and it is the key that determines the account.

I am not sure how this can be done in your public Git repository administration, but maybe you try the other way around, which is second option I mentioned above?

If this answer was helpful, please allow me to ask you to mark my answer as accepted in order to have it in the top of the thread, also helping other customers.

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,

When I create the repository we generate a key for authentication. Could you help us in uploading it on git.corp as I am unaware of the method.
