Need to insert new SSH keys each day

Something strange is going on with my Sourcetree. Each day I need to generate new ssh keys otherwise I get 'permission denied' error. I need to manually delete the old ones from the ssh folder on my mac because if I just copy the old one and try to insert it again in bitbucket I get 'key already exists' error so it's not the key that it doesn't match but it's something else.

What version of Sourcetree are you using?

What OS are you running?

What is the output of ssh-add -l (does it contain the identities you expect)?

  • I am using the latest 2.6.3 version of Sourcetree
  • Running macOS High Sierra 10.13.2
  • That command returns: The agent has no identities.

I noticed that the problem happens once I close Sourcetree and then open it again. This is the error I get:

And then I check this:

I click copy to clipboard and then go to integrations> ssh in bitbucket and after I try to insert the key I get this:

So if I try to enter the key again I get that message so everything is ok with my key, nothing is modifying it.

To be able to fix this I need to manually remove the key from my ssh folder, generate new one and then add it to bitbucket. After that it works, until I close Sourcetree, and then again.
