Git with different SSH keys


I volunteer for scouts (which use bitbucket) and have a day job (which use bitbucket)

The issue is that I have my laptop SSH keys added to my work account, but to be able to git clone the repos on the scouts account, would have to add different keys.

You would think I could set up an SSH config, but the domains are both


Create SSH keys

Create ssh keys for this

Call the keys scouts-bitbucket or anything else

ssh-keygen -t ed25519

env variable

either add to your .envrc or in your local window paste the below

export GIT_SSH_COMMAND="ssh -i ~/.ssh/scouts-bitbucket -o IdentitiesOnly=yes"

Add the public key to BitBucket

cat ~/.ssh/scouts-bitbucket | pbcopy
