Why each time to add ssh key and its password after open app for the first time

I have to add ssh key and its password when I open the app (SourceTree) for the first time. 

Is there way to set / configure key and password once. so next time when I open an app (Sourcetree) it should not ask to add ssh key and its password?

I already have set ssh key in Tools -> Option -> SSH Client Configuration -> SSH Key

Hello! Are you using OpenSSH, or Putty/Plink?

To make sure that the SSH is auto-loaded, make sure "Automatically start SSH agent when Sourcetree opens" is checked under "Tools > Options".

Thanks for the reply.

I am using Open SSH, Automatically start ssh agent option is disabled.
