Need to run ssh-add each time I boot my computer.

Pushing to repo at bitbucket (or github) fails until I run ssh-add. Then pushing works for the duration of time my laptop is powered on.

Someone asked the same question here but there was no solution given.

Hi Rob! The Alpha version of SourceTree (2.5.1) contains additional improvements for authentication, which might solve your issue. You can download it here.

If you're still experiencinng this issue, can you let us know which version of SourceTree and OS are you using? 

Best regards,
