ssh clone Permission denied (publickey).

fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

I am running MacOS 10.13.4

Does Sourcetree need Bitbucket? Bitbucket does not support Macs if I am correct.

I generate a new key but cannot find a way to paste it into Sourcetree

Please check if the ssh-agent has your keys loaded. If not, please add them to the agent. 

Run below commands in terminal to do so,

To check if keys are loaded:

ssh-add -l

To add keys to agent:

ssh-add <path_to_key>

more like,

ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa

Key in the passphrase used while generating the ssh key and you should be good to go.


The reason for this can be found here -
