Multiple SSH Keys Not Working

quizwedge Mar 03, 2013

When I add a repository to SourceTree, the key works. The problem is that when I check a file in it always wants to use my personal email address instead of my work email address in the Author field. Is there a way to have it use my work address for work projects and my personal email address for personal projects automatically? My work projects are through and my personal projects are through bitbucket.

I've turned off "Allow SourceTree to modify your global Mercurial and Git configuration files" though that was on before.

ssh-add -l shows both SSH account.

Below is a modified version of my .ssh/config:



IdentityFile ~/.ssh/mykey

This is to do with your git/hg configuration, in Git for example, you can do "git config ''" and it'll use that for whichever repository you set the configuration option and it'll use that email address for that repository. Perhaps check your global/local configs to see what they have set? (By the way, is the other configuration setting in Git). For Mercurial it's in the .hgrc file where the settings are "username" and "email". This could be located in ~/.hgrc unless you use more localised one per repository. Do "ls -a" at the terminal when browsed to your repository to see if it's there.

Take a look and let us know, happy to help further on this one!
