Permission denied (publickey)

Hi,

I'm using SourceTree v2.5.2 (111) to clone and push to Bitbucket.

When I trying the clone a project or to push, I'm getting the error:

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.
Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

I've tried to re-add the account, checked the ssh key, I'm still getting the error.

Any thought? Can anybody help me?

 

Thx

Hi,

I was able to fix it!

I've tried to re-authorize SourceTree in the OAuth or regenerate the ssk key with `ssh-keygen`. Both didn't worked.

I did follow the documentation configure-multiple-ssh-identities-for-osx-linux

$ ssh -Tv git@bitbucket.org
OpenSSH_6.9p1, LibreSSL 2.1.8
...
Permission denied (publickey).

$ ssh-add -l 
2048 SHA256:... /Users/user/.ssh/id_rsa (RSA)

$ ssh-add ~/.ssh/user-Bitbucket
Enter passphrase for /Users/user/.ssh/user-Bitbucket: 
Identity added: /Users/user/.ssh/user-Bitbucket (/Users/user/.ssh/user-Bitbucket)

$ ssh-add -l 
2048 SHA256:... /Users/user/.ssh/id_rsa (RSA)
2048 SHA256:... /Users/user/.ssh/user-Bitbucket (RSA)

$ ssh -Tv git@bitbucket.org
OpenSSH_6.9p1, LibreSSL 2.1.8
...
logged in as user.

Then, I was able to push my commits. It's working!

The issue might have come after the reboot of the mac. The first one since I had install SourceTree v2.5.2 (110) for a better support of OAuth...

Thank You,  I had the same issue and this was helpful.

This solves my issue for ages!

This worked like a charm, thank you!

If I restart the computer I need to do this again, how to avoid this?

@Arildo Junior you only need to do it once.

Worked for me but I only needed to do the first step, 

ssh -Tv git@bitbucket.org

Which operating system are you using?

Same occurs for me. Has happened since the upgrade to 2.5.2. Switched back to https however that keeps asking for my password constantly. Atleast I can work though.

I've also switched to GitKraken which has no issues with the same repos and ssh. Might be worth switching everything over.

Thank you very much, the solution proposed in this post https://www.flynsarmy.com/2017/09/fix-permission-denied-publickey-git/ worked for me!
