Can Stash ssh keys be deleted programmatically?

Is there an API call, or some other mechanism I could use, to remove ssh keys? Specifically, any key older than a certain date, but removing all keys from a user would also be acceptible.

Hi Austin,

You can use the REST api to list and delete SSH keys for any user (assuming you're an admin) and delete all SSH keys for a given user. The documentation for the SSH REST api is here.

Unfortunately, the Stash does not track when a SSH key was created, so deleting by date isn't possible. If you want to delete a single SSH key, you'll first have to GET the list of SSH keys for the user using:

/rest/ssh/1.0/keys?user=<username>&start=<number>&limit=<number>

where start and limit are optional. From the list of keys that is returned you need to find the key that you want to delete, and use its id and send a DELETE HTTP request to:

/rest/ssh/1.0/keys/<keyId>

If instead you're happy deleting all the keys for a user, simply send a DELETE to:

/rest/ssh/1.0/keys?user=<username>
