SSH Agent

Per default your SSH Key at ~/.ssh/id_rsa is added to the Docker containers from pygmy

If you need another key, read the documentation of pygmy about this.

How it works

  1. pygmy starts amazeeio/ssh-agent container with a volume /tmp/amazeeio_ssh-agent
  2. pygmy adds a default SSH key from the host into this volume
  3. docker-compose.yml should have volume inclusion specified for CLI container: ``` volumes_from:
    • container:amazeeio-ssh-agent ```
  4. When CLI container starts, the volume is mounted and an entrypoint script adds SHH key into agent. @see

Running ssh-add -L within CLI container should show that the SSH key is correctly loaded.


SSH Key issues

As everything on works with key authentication sometimes you might run into issues where the drush aliases aren't displayed or you can't connect to the servers.

Could not load API JWT Token, error was: ' Permission denied (publickey).'

Or for legacy systems: (staging)$ drush @master ssh
 Permission denied (publickey).
  1. Check if you see the SSH Key inside your container with ssh-add -L
    If you get Could not open a connection to your authentication agent. or The agent has no identities. head straight to step 3.
  2. Check if you see your SSH Key in pygmy status
  3. If you don't see the key in pymgy status run pygmy addkey. You should see Successfully added ssh key if the key addition was successful.
  4. After that you need to recreate the containers docker-compose up -d --force
  5. When the containers are recreated you should be able to see your ssh key with ssh-add -L
  6. If you still get the Permission denied (publickey) error get in touch with our engineers to check if the key is configured correctly on the hosting side.
