I have two accounts in Bitbucket. One is my personal account which I registered using my personal email account. Other one is my official account registered using my office email. When I moved from HTTP to SSH in Bitbucket, I had to generate two separate SSH keys for both accounts.
So now I have two SSH keys in my laptop. When trying to push code to my personal account, how can Bitbucket know which SSH key to use? I faced this issue. My already working repo start yelling that I do not have access to the repo.
To teach Bitbucket which SSH key to use with which account, we need to do following steps.
First, create a file in
~/.ssh folder with name
config. No extensions!. My SSH keys are stored in
config file in some editor and paste following content:
#Personal account Host bitbucket.org-jobyjoseph HostName bitbucket.org User git IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_ed25519 IdentitiesOnly yes #Official account Host bitbucket.org-jobylitmus7 HostName bitbucket.org User git IdentityFile ~/.ssh/ed25519_bitbucket_litmus7 IdentitiesOnly yes
jobylitmus7 with your Bitbucket user names. Then replace
ed25519_bitbucket_litmus7 with the file names of your SSH files.
