Add SSH Key
Updated over a week ago

You can add your SSH Key to your Scaleforce account, once it is generated.

Important!: Follow the instruction within the SSH Access to GIT Repository guide, to manage private SSH keys intended for authentication at your GIT account.

To add a public SSH key, which can also be used to gain SSH access, follow the steps as below:

1- Go to the Jelastic dashboard and click Settings.


2- The SSH Keychain option will be opened within the Account settings tab.


In this section, you also find some information about the SSH protocol usage and the possibilities it provides.

3- Go to the Public suboption and click the Add Public Key button.


4- Go to the Key input field and paste the public key generated previously. If your key already contains this value (or you can specify your own one here) then the Add Public Key field will be automatically populated. Click Add Key.


5- The added SSH key will appear in the list. Meanwhile, you will receive an email with details on it (like title, fingerprint, and connection string for your SSH client).


Use the red-cross button to add several keys or delete the unnecessary ones.

Important!: The added SSH key is attached to your account, but not just to a separate environment.
