multiple git accounts with multiple ssh keys
Suppose that you have 2 bitbucket accounts witch usernames are username1 and username2.
Open the terminal and create 2 ssh file2 for both usernames:
ssh-keygen -f ~/.ssh/username1-Bitbucket ssh-keygen -f ~/.ssh/username2-Bitbucket
Create or edit the ~/.ssh/config file
touch ~/.ssh/config open ~/.ssh/config
The ~/.ssh/config file should look like this:
Host bitbucket.org-username1 HostName bitbucket.org User username1 IdentityFile ~/.ssh/username1-Bitbucket IdentitiesOnly yes Host bitbucket.org-username2 HostName bitbucket.org User username2 IdentityFile ~/.ssh/username2-Bitbucket IdentitiesOnly yes
Step 3 or Final Step:
Change your remote git URL to have your username before ‘@bitbucket.org’
git remote add origin [email protected]:company/app.git
git remote set-url origin [email protected]:company/app.git
If you have not yet cloned your repository:
git clone [email protected]:company/app.git
