Unable to add private SSH key to "SSH Permissions"


#1

I’m using simple command to generate SSH key ssh-keygen -t rsa -C "circleci". But I can’t add this key to “SSH Permissions”.
I’ve checked console and the response is:

Request URL: https://circleci.com/api/v1.1/project/bitbucket/outing-travel/admin-web/ssh-key
Request Method: POST
Status Code: 400 Bad Request
{"message":"it looks like private key is invalid key.  Double check"}

I’ve regenerated it but still doesn’t work. Can anybody help me.
Passphrase is empty. I’ve tried even with ssh-keygen -b 2048 -t rsa -q -N "" and it doesn’t work

PS. I found few similar topics, but hey’re outdated

Can you generate a throwaway key and show it to us? Maybe there is something obviously wrong with it, if we can see it.

Edit: are you using the API or the web app here?

I’m using web app.
This is my sample key:

Worked fine for me, the fingerprint was 5a:76:b8:e0:21:fd:7b:44:cc:9b:5e:51:5f:3d:da:08. You just need to remove the spurious newline from the middle :smiley:

Indeed! I’m copying from Atom’s terminal, which adds extra new line in the middle. Thanks anyway, we can close this discussion.
