I'm trying to setup sourcetree 3 on a new Mac. I already had my SSH key created and added to GitHub prior to installing SourceTree. When i go into the accounts section in sourcetree and try to add my GitHub account with SSH, I get a message during the "connect" phase that says "There was a problem adding your new SSH key to your GitHub account". GitHub doesn't allow adding the same key twice so i tried removing it on their end but it still didn't help. I get the same message. Obviously source tree won't let me pull because of credentials errors. This was really easy with Personal Access tokens in SourceTree 2...what can I try in SourceTree 3 to get this to connect?
You can login to GitHub on Sourcetree using OAuth and post that use either your own ssh key or a new ssh key generated from Sourcetree. If this key isn't already present on the host, it will be uploaded to GitHub by Sourcetree.
Lastly, 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:
To add keys to agent:
Key in the passphrase used while generating the ssh key and you should be good to go.
For some reason my ssh key was not added to the agent. I thought this had been done. I added it successfully but it still doesnt fix the issue. I get authentication errors if a try to pull from my remote repo and if i go into the accounts panel and connect with github using my id_rsa.pub I get the same error saying "There was a problem adding your new SSH key to your GitHub account". I assume the error with adding the new key is because the key already exists on GitHub but if i delete the SSH key on GitHub, SourceTree still reports that there is an error adding it. So i do what it says and add it manually but still get nothing.
