GIT on Private SSH key is invalid or empty

Hi Team,

I have got a GIT repo created in my project and have got me private key generated.

Parameters used while creating the Key was SSH-2 DSA with number of bits as 1024. This was generated from PUTTY Keygen.

So currently my Key looks like this:

PuTTY-User-Key-File-2: ssh-dss
Encryption: aes256-cbc

When I import this key while adding the GIT repo in JIRA I am getting the below error:

"That is not a valid SSH private key. Please try a different one.
Technical error reported from the git client:
Private SSH key is invalid or empty"
Can you please advise?
Thanks,
Rakesh

Hi Rakesh,

Out of curiosity, what do you mean by "When I import this key while adding the GIT repo in JIRA" - are you using a JIRA plugin that allows you to host git repositories?

The private key that you have generated is putty specific and uses a different format to a private key generated by for example OpenSSH (ssh-keygen).

I think a private key in the latter format is what you need to make this work.

Cheers,

Stefan

Hi Team,

Thanks,
Rakesh
