Source tree on Mac cannot working by using special ssh key


Let's  say that :

we are using :

    mac osx 10.13.6

    source tree 3.x 

    git 2.17.x

We have : x projects with using ssh for each for identifying.

so we have x difference ssh private keys.

There is no problem if we getting use terminal and ssh to do anything with git by few command : 

MacBook-Pro:~ lantranduc$ eval $(ssh-agent -s)

Agent pid 1157

MacBook-Pro:~ lantranduc$ ssh-add ~/.ssh/privatekey1
Identity added: /Users/lantranduc/.ssh/privatekey1 (/Users/lantranduc/.ssh/privatekey1

 then we can interaction with remote repo by typing command one by one on terminal ( wow ... )
but problem come when we want to use source tree for manage our repositories. We cannot identifying ourself by just putting  ssh keys in .ssh folder like old versoin of source tree and mac OSX. 

so, can you give me some advice on how to make them work together ? 
i dont wanna typing git command everytime i need to do someting with git anymore. 

Thank you
