Can Stash ssh keys be deleted programmatically?

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.

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:


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